Description

Kalgoorlie (Kulgooluh meaning "place of the silky pears") is one of Australia's most iconic and historically significant towns, with a modern history dating back to the gold rush era. But there is another side to the legendary town. With an Aboriginal history that dates back some 30,000 years, it is a place of great cultural significance with many Dreaming stories connected to the land and numerous sacred sites. Bush Ghoodhu Wongutha Tours gives you a glimpse into both of these worlds on a range of tours. We invite you to join our Wongutha guide and hear the "first story" of Kulgooluh.
