Mount Charlotte

Natural Attractions

An easy walk to the summit of Mount Charlotte rewards you with the best sunset views in Kalgoorlie, looking out over Australia’s largest outback city and one of the richest goldfields on Earth. It’s also the terminus for one of Australia’s most amazing engineering feats – the Golden Pipeline – which has brought water, the most precious resource of all, to the Goldfields since 1903.

You can even follow this epic water pipeline on its 563-kilometre journey all the way from Mundaring Weir, in the Perth Hills, through the Wheatbelt to Kalgoorlie in the Goldfields. If you’re exploring Kalgoorlie on foot, it’s less than a 10-minute walk from the Museum of the Goldfields to reach Mount Charlotte.

See the rich and fascinating history of the mount and reservoir revealed in the interpretive signage. Stand at the summit and marvel at the engineering genius of the pipeline’s founding father, CY O’Connor. Or imagine yourself there in the moment, when Paddy Hannan, Thomas Flanagan and Dan Shea sparked the Western Australian gold rush and unearthed one of the richest goldfields in the world.
