2nd May 2017–Kalgoorlie to Hyden

Distance: 509 km
Fuel: 38 ltr

Got to say that stopping for milk in Coolgardie made me wish I had stayed there instead of Kalgoorlie, looked an interesting town. Anyway…

Another day another pit, this time at Coolgardie.

Coolgardie had some wonderful buildings – a reminder of better days.

Finally climbed the rock itself which gave terrific views of the area which glowed in the setting sun.

The rock is also the catchment for the town’s water supply.

Considering I was in two minds about coming here I am glad that I did.

BTW: Have travelled about 4700km so far on this trip.
