Stay warm this winter with a fun getaway to Kalgoorlie

Is Kalgoorlie worth visiting in the winter? Besides getting some relief from our city’s typically scorching temperatures, while staying a little warmer away from other WA holiday destinations closer to the coast, there’s lots to see and do along with some great Kalgoorlie accommodation package deals that we offer at the Plaza Hotel.

If you’ve done the Down South trip too many times to count, here’s why you should visit Kalgoorlie this winter and the best events and attractions we recommend seeing.

Join in the festival season with street markets, comedy nights, and cultural experiences

Already had a look around the Super Pit and eaten your way through Kalgoorlie’s best restaurants? While most WA cities and towns tend to stay cooped up indoors on colder days, winter in Kalgoorlie is when some of our biggest events start to open!

Here’s what’s on in Kalgoorlie this winter for 2022:

The Kalgoorlie Multicultural Festival

If you’re a foodie, history buff, or just someone who loves to wander through the noise and excitement of an outdoors event, you’ll want to come to Kalgoorlie’s annual Multicultural Festival.

The festival is a celebration of Kalgoorlie’s vibrant community of migrants, who have travelled from all over the world for generations to share in the riches offered by the Goldfields and have built Kalgoorlie into the city it is today.

At night, you can wander through the festival’s street markets, enjoy a taste of a wide variety of international cuisines, and take the family along for some live music and dance performances.

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow

Love stand-up comedy and sketches that’ll get your sides hurting? The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow will be stopping by the Goldfields Arts Centre in Kalgoorlie on the 31st of May, with tickets that also include some free pizza to enjoy with the show.

Learn some traditional Aboriginal arts and crafts

Are you a more arts and crafts person who will be itching for something to do on rainier days during your Kalgoorlie trip? The Goldfields Aboriginal Language Centre (GALCAC) is hosting two cultural days in early July where you can learn about and purchase some traditional Aboriginal artworks and crafts.

If you want to get hands on while also immersing yourself in an authentic Aboriginal cultural experience, visit the GALCAC website for more details.
