Information

Kalgoorlie railway station is the most eastern station in Western Australia, located at the Eastern Goldfields Railway. It serves the city of Kalgoorlie. Beyond Kalgoorlie the line continues east as the Trans-Australian Railway.

The platform is the longest in Western Australia. At either end of the main platform are two bays; the one to the east (adjacent to the former water tank and signal box) was where services from the Boulder loop line passenger services arrived, and the western bay is where the current Prospector services terminate. The eastern end bay was also where passengers embarked and disembarked when the Trans-Australian service terminated in Kalgoorlie, prior to the extension of the standard gauge line to Perth.

Due to it being the western terminus of the Trans-Australian Railway, the station has been the location of a number of commemorations and ceremonies from the opening of that railway in 1917 and since.

Kalgoorlie is served by the Transwa Prospector rural train service and the Indian Pacific. It was also previously served by the Kalgoorlie Express, The Westland and Trans Australian.

The Prospector service runs to and from East Perth one or twice each day.
