The arboretum, set on 26 hectares of land at Hawkins Street adjacent to Hammond Park, is just five minutes from central Kalgoorlie. It was established in 1954 by the former Forests Department to test and demonstrate native and exotic trees for suitability to the semi-arid environment of the Great Western Woodlands. Since then, seed from these tree species has been exported to similar semi-arid countries around the world. About 60 eucalypt species have been planted in the past 40 years.

Description

This massive operation, known as the Super Pit forms part of the 'Golden Mile', reputed to be the richest square mile of gold bearing earth in the world.
Getting up close to the Super Pit is a dwarfing experience.  At 320 metres deep, about 3km long and 1.4km wide this massive man made hole in the ground makes an awesome sight.
While it’s not possible to enter the pit, which operates 24 hours a day, you can still get a feel for it’s enormity from the nearby lookout platform which you’ll find just off the Goldfields Highway.
The view is amazing, giant mining trucks with tyres taller than the average person look more like tonka toys as they make their way to the deep base of the mine. 
The Super Pit Lookout is open every day from 8am until 9.30pm. Night time viewing is just as spectacular thanks to the massive lighting infrastructure.
You can drive yourself to the Lookout or Goldrush Tours offer a daily two hour History and Heritage trip ($25 for adults, $5 children) which includes a stop at the Super Pit Lookout, as well as visits to some of the historic buildings and streets of Kalgoorlie. Goldrush Tours, 1800 620 440.
