About Boulder Market Day Super Pit Tours
Boulder Market Day is the 3rd Sunday of every month and this is when the famous Burt Street, the heart of Boulder, comes alive with a variety of market stalls, food and entertainment. The very popular one hour Super Pit tours run at 9am, 10am, 11am and 12 noon and depart from our premises at the Old Boulder Power Station Hamilton St.
Jump on the bus to get a first hand look inside the KCGM mining operations. Sit back and learn about Australia's largest gold mine from one of our knowledgeable tour guides. The tour takes you through the KCGM Black Street security gates past the mine site offices, Fimiston Mill, Workshop Yard and to an internal lookout. At the internal lookout, passengers are able to get out of the bus and view the operation from a different perspective than the public lookout.
The tours last for approximately an hour and are free of charge if collected on the day of the tour and depart from the Eastern Goldfield's Historical Society building on Hamilton Street. However, tickets are limited and go fast, so to guarantee your seats you can purchase tickets the week prior from the Society 08 9093 3360 for $5 each or $10 for a family of four (two adults and two children). Please note, that it is a requirement that all passengers wear fully enclosed shoes for the tour.
Some more activities that the Society has to offer include:
* Excursions to places of historic interest.
* Heritage walks and tours of buildings.
* Book launches.
* Advice and training in historic research and preventative conservation.
* Or you may like to help compile photographic records.
