A visit to the town of Boulder provides you with an opportunity to visit the Miners Monument located in the centre of the town. The monument was created to commemorate over 1,300 miners that have been killed since the gold rush of the 1890s.
Examine the realistic detail of the statue that depicts a miner using an air leg drill, which is often used in underground mines.
After viewing the monument, continue down Burt Street on foot, and join into the Boulder Historic Walk. The walk encompasses one of the most significant historical streetscapes in Western Australia. Each building along the route has a story and makes for an attractive photograph.
The Miners Monument is just 20 minutes drive from Kalgoorlie and a seven hour drive east of Perth.
