I’ve been in the twin-cities for the last week doing a work experience placement at the daily newspaper while staying with my journalist friend Rania. And I LOVE IT HERE. Kalgoorlie, for those outside Australia, is a mining town in rural Western Australia. A town infamous for gold, miners, and brothels and the closest Australia has to a ‘Wild West’. The Super Pit (second photo) is the largest open pit mine in Australia. It’s hard to see how deep the pit really is, but that black spec at the bottom is a truck with a scoop the size of the one i’m standing in 3 photos later. HUGE. The closest city is Perth, 595 kilometres away.
For an taste of Kal, I strongly recommend watching Kalgoorlie Cops
Back to Melbourne on Friday night x
