What better way to enjoy the beautiful sights of Kalgoorlie-Boulder than with a delicious picnic spread. Top picks are:
- Hammond Park, Lamington
A luscious parkland with several spaces to set up a picnic. Take your pick - beside the duck pond? Or underneath the historic rotunda? Pack your picnic hamper with ingredients for gourmet burgers and take advantage of the on-site barbeques. Enjoy the tranquil wildlife with peacocks, kangaroos and emus galore and an amazing playground to keep the kids entertained.
- Karlkurla Park, Hannans
Set amongst a beautiful woodland setting, take a walk through the winding trail, across a bridge and up the hill to Karlkurlas’ Katunga lookout. You will be treated with a spectacular view of the bush while enjoying your lunch. With a bonus work-out on the way back down to your car.
- Centennial Park, Great Eastern Hwy
The best part about Centennial Park is no BYO food required! In what has become a bit of a food truck hub, you will find burgers, coffee, Thai cuisine and several traveling varieties to enjoy. Just bring your rug and enjoy the luscious lawn.
- Lake Douglas, Great Eastern Hwy
A stone’s throw from town (only 10 kms) you’ll find Lake Douglas, a shaded wetland reserve that’s perfect for a sunset picnic. Don't forget to pack the marshmallows!
5. WA Museum (Goldfields), Hannan Street, CBD
At the top of Hannan street you’ll find the WA Museum of the Goldfields. With traveling exhibitions and an
underground gold room to explore, don’t forget to leave time to enjoy lunch. Choose from the courtyard picnic
tables under the weeping trees and surrounded by old miners’ cottages or take the elevator to the top of the
headframe and enjoy your lunch with a view of historic Hannan Street.
Stop in at Kalgoorlie’s Visitor Centre located at the Kalgoorlie Town Hall, Hannan Street and grab a map to find your way around these picnic spots (and discover some more of your own).
