The Super Pit. The name alone will get your blood rushing with excitement! The Super Pit is one of the most famous attractions to visit with a hire car within Kalgoorlie. It is an open-cut gold mine created by Alan Bond that is approximately 3.6 kilometers long! This particular place is interesting, because the digging reveals old shafts containing old equipment and vehicles from earlier mines. Park your hire car here, because the mine is still operable to this day.

There is a visitor centre that overlooks it. And every 1:00 p.m the mine blasts and if you are lucky you will get to see old shafts with abandoned equipment and vehicles from the previous mines. The mine will continue to operate 24/7 until 2017. After that the authorities will let the ground water seep and it is estimated that it will take more or less 50 years to completely fill the pit. That is how big it is!
