The Goldfields War Museum was established in 1989 to showcase the Goldfields community contribution to conflicts in which Australia has been involved and was realised through the vision, drive and dedication of local resident Ross Rogers and his family. In April 2010, the museum was devastated by a 5.0 magnitude earthquake, the highest ever recorded in the area. The Goldfields War Museum relocated to the Kalgoorlie Town Hall with a long-term commitment from the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder to redevelop the museum and return it to Boulder.

On 7 January 2019, the museum was reopened in the Boulder Town Hall. Walk through the exhibition and discover the significant involvement residents of the town made during the Boer War, World Wars I and II, through to the 21st Century. Examine photographs, documents and original artefacts to gain an in-depth understanding of the wars and how they impacted on those enlisted and on the home front.

The Goldfields War Museum is located in the historic town of Boulder, 6.5 hours drive east of Perth.

The town of Boulder and nearby Kalgoorlie offers a plethora of fascinating attractions.
