Historic Burt Street

Boulder

Like Kalgoorlie’s Hannan Street, Boulder’s Burt Street is another architectural treasure trove. At the height of the gold boom era, both towns were fierce rivals, with Boulder being home to most of the Golden Mile’s mine workers and their families. It was a stronghold of the union movement and each year Burt Street hosted a Labour Day parade with marching bands and brightly decorated floats. The jewel of Burt Street is the Boulder Town Hall (opened in 1908) with its famous Goatcher Curtain depicting the Bay of Naples.



Burt Street is currently undergoing a multi million façade restoration as you can see from the photo.  When completed it will represent of the traders and store owners of the beginning of the Goldfields and is looking fantastic.
