The Super Pit is in Boulder along the Golden Mile.
Flights, TransWA trains and extended tours depart daily from Perth, or you can hit the Great Eastern Highway for a seven-hour drive from city to outback.
To get your head around how this mining giant operates, pull on a hardhat and take a guided tour. Alternatively, take in the spectacle for free at the Super Pit Lookout, off the Goldfields Highway. Access to the Lookout is restricted during blasting times, contact the Kalgoorlie Boulder Visitor Centre for details.
The Super Pit now incorporates the historic Golden Mile, marking the spot where Irishman Paddy Hannan first struck gold and sparked the great gold rush of the late 1800s. You can learn more about his famous discovery and Goldfields history on a visit to this unmissable landmark.
