Coolgardie’s Ben Prior Park and open-air mining museum

In the centre of Coolgardie, on the main road, is an open-air living history collection with old gold mining equipment such as shaft winder wheels and a drilling rig used by early gold miners.

It is a visible and convenient place to stop for the 400,000 vehicles that travel through Coolgardie every year. Evolution has partnered with the Shire of Coolgardie, the Kambalda Men’s Shed and Coolgardie Men’s Shed to upgrade this tourism rest stop and local park to encourage tourists to stay and contribute to the Coolgardie economy.
