About Curtin Kalgoorlie

The historic mining town of Kalgoorlie is located in the Goldfields region of Western Australia, approximately 600 kilometres east of Perth. The town was established in 1893 when gold was first discovered there, and today it remains an important centre for the state’s mining industry.

Curtin Kalgoorlie is located next to the Central Business District and offers a strong sense of community both in and out of the classroom. You can study our renowned mining and engineering degrees here, as well as online courses in health sciences, education and commerce.
