Burt Street
Kalgoorlie-Boulder was rocked by a 5.0 magnitude earthquake at 8.17am on Tuesday 20th April 2010. Boulder’s Historic Burt Street with the two blocks from Hamilton to Brookman Street were cordoned off and buildings evacuated. Police, FESA and council worked through the day to clear the damage and secure Boulder buildings.
Initially it was thought that the earthquake occurred many km’s from the City, however after further data analysis the new position shows that it occurred in the centre of Boulder. This position also agrees with the aftershocks which were recorded in the months following the earthquake. (Data received from Geoscience Australia).
The upper stories of Boulder’s Historic Hotels were affected the most. The facades of the shops in Burt Street were also badly damaged. The City Of Kalgoorlie-Boulder has spent in excess of $8,000,000 to restore the majority of shop fronts back to quaint Federation style shop fronts.

& Goatcher Curtain
This beautifully preserved historic town hall, with pressed tin ceilings and wrought iron balustrades was opened on the 23 June 1908.
The stage curtain, which depicts a scene of the Bay of Naples, is a unique and priceless work of art. Painted by one of the Victorian era’s greatest scenic painters, Englishman Phillip Goatcher, it was painted for the opening of the Boulder Town Hall in 1908. This particular curtain is the world’s last surviving example of a working Goatcher Curtain. The Boulder Town Hall has reopened to the public after undergoing extensive repairs following the April 2010 earthquake. For opening hours contact the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder on (08) 9021 9600.
5.Palace Theatre Building
Built in 1937, this building is a fine example of the art deco style of the 1930’s and is one of only two such buildings remaining in the Goldfields region. In 1978, a group of concerned local business & community members felt the need for a ‘Drop-in-Centre’ for the Youth of Kalgoorlie and Boulder. The facility was gifted to Boulder Promotion & Development Association in 2002 and was renamed “Palace Theatre Recreation Centre”. The Centre is now a separate entity run by a management committee. There are skating sessions on every Sunday and the centre is also used for birthday parties and other functions. Steph Openshaw is the Manager and can be contacted on 0427 990 019.
