It is best to take a flight to Kalgoorlie between April and September when the weather is coolest. To experience some wonderfully consistent heat, visit in the warmest month of January. Kalgoorlie tends to be a quiet town, but this all changes in September during the Boulder to Kalgoorlie Cup. This is a yearly horse racing event which attracts visitors from all over the West of Australia to the town to make bets, socialise, carouse, and generally make merry. Book flights to Kalgoorie during this month to experience some real Western Australian hospitality.
Another major annual event for the region is in May when there is a weeklong celebration of the Arts and Cultural in the area through an event called The Heart of Gold Festival. The event sees a variety of performances from local talent as well as those visiting to perform and has something to attract and entertain everyone.
Take a cheap flight to Kalgoorlie located in the Goldfields region of Western Australia, famous for its goldmines. You can explore this aspect of the region’s history at the Super Pit Gold Mine, which is both an informative attraction and a breathtakingly beautiful area of sparkling streams and rolling hills. If you want to find out more about the intriguing history and culture of Western Australia, then the city’s Western Australian Museum should be your first port of call. This family-friendly museum is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon. Lovers of all things food and drink will be delighted by the Beaten Track Brewery, which contains a wealth of exquisitely concocted beers and other beverages. Boorabbin National Park is a brilliant place to take your family. It has plenty of adventures for kids, hiking trails for people of all ages, scenic picnic spots, and is a real treasure trove of amazing native flora and fauna. This city derives its name from the indigenous word for ‘Silky Pear Bush’, which is a lovely species of shrub native to the region – see if you can spot some during your trip!
One excellent tour operator is Kalgoorlie Tours and Charters, which regularly takes travellers on exciting pit tours of the region’s goldmines. There are plenty of other goldmining-themed day tours to go on here. Goldrush Day Tours, for instance, will give you the opportunity to try your hand at panning for gold!

All flights to Kalgoorlie land at Kalgoorlie-Boulder Airport (KGI), located just 5.6 km from the centre of town. It can be a good idea to hire a car for the duration of your stay in this part of Western Australia as public transport is somewhat limited, book early prefereably the same time as booking your flight to Kalgoorlie to avoid disappointment. One good option for getting to your hotel from the airport is to hire a car and have it waiting for you in time for your flight to arrive. Alternatively, grab a local taxi (these tend to be very cheap) or take advantage of the shuttle bus service. These shuttles can, on request, stop at specific hotels or other calling points within the town centre, which is very handy if you have a lot of luggage in town.
