About this park
Kalgoorlie Arboretum is a great place for walking and picnics. Take one of the interpretive walk trails and learn more about the trees of the Great Western Woodlands. The Great Western Woodlands are the largest remaining area of Mediterranean climate woodland left on Earth.
Established in 1954, the arboretum covers 26 hectares of land close to Kalgoorlie. About 60 types of eucalyptus trees have been planted here over the past 40 years. Exotic trees were planted here too. Come and see which ones have thrived. This is a living museum of arid tree species. Fascinating!
Relax with a picnic on the grassed area under the shade of the river gum trees. Birdwatchers will enjoy spotting the many types of birds. The small dam is a good place to set up your chair and binoculars. This leisurely park is fun for the whole family. There’s even a dog exercise area so your furry, four-legged friend can enjoy Kalgoorlie Arboretum too!
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
