What is the difference between the 1 hour and the 2.5 hour Super Pit Tour?
The 1 hour tour does everything the 2.5 hour tour does except go through the Fimiston milling and crushing operation. We only occasionally run the 1hr tour unless the Flimiston milling operations are on maintenance shut down or large demand.
Does the Super Pit tour go to the bottom of the pit?
Unfortunately due to safety concerns the tour does not go to the very bottom of the pit but does travel through the haul roads with the big trucks. You are definitely inside the pit!
Where can I park my caravan?
There is designated Campervan and Caravan parking bays on Cassidy Street walking distance to the Kalgoorlie Tours & Charters shop.
Where can I park my car?
There is all day parking bays on Egan Street and Brookman Street, both running parallel to Hannan Street. Please do not park in Hannan Street as this is 1 hour only parking.
Do I have to wear long sleeve shirt, long pants and covered shoes on the Super Pit Tour?
Yes. As you will be going on to an operating mine site you have to abide by the KCGM occupational health and safety requirements. We do have light weight overalls for $5.00 in store if you get stuck.
Where do you pick up from?
All tours depart from Kalgoorlie Tours and Charters, St Barbara Square, 250 Hannan Street, Kalgoorlie except for the Prospecting Training Day. Pick up location for this is advised at time of booking.
Does anyone ever find gold when on the Prospecting Training Day?
Yes, we have had a huge amount of people successful in finding gold, and remember FINDERS KEEPERS, what you find you get to keep.
