Kalgoorlie (121.46E 30.74S) is an important junction on the railroad from Perth to the population centers of southeastern Australia. Gold was found here in 1893 and contributed to the settlement of the area, and the Golden Mile remains one of the most productive gold fields in the world. Water is obtained by pipeline from the Mundaring Reservoir, 346 miles to the west.
