In Detail

Get a feel for the mine's enormity from the nearby lookout platform which you'll find just off the Goldfields Highway.

The view is amazing - giant mining trucks with tyres taller than the average person look more like tonka toys as they make their way to the deep base of the mine.

The Super Pit Lookout is open every day from 8am until 9.30pm. Night time viewing is just as spectacular thanks to the massive lighting infrastructure.

You can drive yourself to the Lookout or Goldrush Tours (ph 1800 620 440) offer a daily three hour History and Heritage tour ($50 for adults, $25 children) which includes a stop at the Super Pit Lookout, as well as visits to some of the historic buildings and streets of Kalgoorlie.

If you're not taking the tour, stop in at the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Visitor Centre (ph 9021 1966) for times of daily Super Pit blasts visible from the Lookout.
