It is of interesting history that Kalgoorlie was where it all began for WA. The gold rush they had became the catalyst towards mining and the main source of development of cities in Western Australia. Otherwise, it would have been the typical malay saying .. purely PADANG JARAK PADANG TEKUKUR. The great outback of nothingness!
We went to the Mining Hall of fame and sadly it was one of the last days of their existence.Apparently they were closing because of financial woes in maintaining the place. Sayang, as it would have been educational and interesting to know how mining works and a visit to an underground mine was certainly the highlight! Seeing with your eyes how they mould gold was also something I was fascinated with.
It was an enjoyable trip discovering the Pipeline trail as well as the Mining History of Australia. I certainly came back as a more learned person:)
