QUESTA CASA - Australia's Oldest Brothel

  Tours   Kalgoorlie


Hours: Everyday at 3pm

Hay Street Kalgoorlie is the home to one of the world's oldest working brothels. Questa Casa has been in known operation for over 120 years and is possibly the worlds oldest working brothel.

Also known as "THE PINK HOUSE", Questa Casa is the only remaining brothel from Kalgoorlie's gold rush era, built in the 1890's. The historical brothel offers tourists the unique opportunity to glimpse life from a bygone era.

Questa Casa is the only brothel remaining on Hay Street and has the famous "STARTING STALLS" which were world famous for the scantily clad ladies standing in the doorways. Still operating, the girls throw open these infamous doors nightly.

The guided tour lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes and takes you through the historical working areas of the house; through the starting stalls at the front where the ladies first talk to the gentleman (sometimes they are caught doing other things!!), and through the rooms which the ladies use every night, the same rooms that have been used since this house was established. The cramped rooms, which are freezing in winter and stifling hot in summer, give a unique insight into the life of those who frequented these world famous illegal houses.

Hear stories of how it was in "old" Kalgoorlie, for the ladies and those often lonely miners who visited them. Discover why, despite complaining bitterly about the working conditions, the ladies flocked here and kept coming back time and time again.
