About the Kalgoorlie Town Hall

The Kalgoorlie Town Hall, located on the corner of Hannan and Wilson Streets, is one of the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s major landmarks.

Built as a state-of-the-art theatre in 1908, this impressive Edwardian-styled building has many beautiful architectural features such as:

  •  Ornate pressed metal ceilings
  •  Chandeliers
  •  Sweeping staircase.

Other highlights include:

  •  Fly tower—with original theatre rigging
  •  Backstage area with 11 dressing rooms
  •  Extensive collection of art and memorabilia.

As a town hall, it still hosts the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Council meetings 100 years later. The Council Chambers and Mayor’s Parlour on the first floor contain many objects, photographs and paintings of historic value.

A lift has recently been installed to provide better access to the first floor of the building.
