Just outside of central Kalgoorlie is 26 hectares of woodland perfect for walks.

First established in 1954, it was designed as a testing area to see if certain native and exotic tree species could grow in the arid Kalgoorlie environment. This proved a success and seeds from these trees have been exported worldwide, including nearly 60 types of eucalyptus.

Dotted along the paths are a number of information signs, providing information of just some of the flora growing here.

Kalgoorlie Arboretum

This is a perfect spot to take a walk, regardless of the time of year. If there is water in the dam, you’re sure to see some ducks paddling back and forth.
