Drove up from Esperance through Norseman. We had lunch here and then drove up to Beacon Hill Lookout. From here you can see a fair way across the area and also see a huge pile of tailings (leftover soil/dirt from the mines).
We camped the night about 12km out of Kalgoorlie at Lake Douglas Recreation Area. This is a huge area where locals come to do some 4x4 driving and trail biking and probably some water sports as there is a dam there as well. We had the large lower area to ourselves and it was so quiet it was a little bit eerie!
Monday 26th - drove into Kalgoorlie and walked around the main street to look at some of the early builfings. Did a bus tour of the Superpit owned by KCGM and saw lots of BIG trucks, loaders and crushers. As we were on the mine site we all had to wear long sleeves, long pants and enclosed shoes - pretty hot after a few days of rain and clouds. We also saw a blast at the mine which blasts away tonnes of rock.
Camped the night in Centennial Park where if you are fully self sufficient you can stop with your caravan or motor home.
