The Boulder Town Hall was built in 1908, and demonstrates the architectural style of the prosperous gold rush days. It is a beautifully preserved historic hall with pressed tin ceilings and wrought iron balustrades. The Hall was formerly a theatre famous for celebrity performances by Dame Nellie Melba, Eileen Joyce and Joan Sutherland. It still houses a rare and famous Philip Goatcher Stage Curtain, believed to be the last remaining one of its kind. This spectacular curtain depicts the scene of the Bay of Naples and has hung in the hall since 1908. See the lovingly restored curtain be lowered by its original pulley system each Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and on Boulder Market days. On entering this grand old building, you will sense the energy and importance of the hall which operated as a library and municipal offices for most of the 20th century, was the centre of community life in Boulder. Located on the corner of Burt and Lane Streets, Boulder is a seven hour drive east of Perth. You should allow at least two or three days to soak up the unique gold rush history of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.
