Yesterday, Sunday, we drove to Kalgoorlie â€“ about 580km from Perth, which took us about seven hours. The road follows a large pipe through which fresh water flows to Kalgoorlie from Perth. This pipe, called the Golden Pipeline, was finished in 1903, within a few years of Kalgoorlie being established as a town.
Along the way we stopped in Southern Cross for petrol â€“ itâ€™s a small town where all the streets are named after stars or constellations. Very nifty for a geek like me!
