Our state-of-the-art high-speed train departs from Perth and Kalgoorlie stations once a day, twice on Monday and Friday.
The Perth to Kalgoorlie standard gauge train line first opened in 1971, replacing the overnight sleeper service and cutting the 653 km journey from fourteen hours to only eight—making it the fastest service in Australia at the time.
Our modern Prospector (also known to locals as the Kalgoorlie train) is a far cry from the 1970's model—boasting air-conditioning, power points for charging your electronic devices, full buffet service and on-demand personal entertainment systems, complete with new release movies.
The Prospector is a WDA/WDB/WDC train built by United Goninan in Broadmeadow, NSW.
With toilet and disability facilities, the Prospector is the perfect way to travel to Western Australia’s Golden Outback.
