The Shire of Coolgardie is a Local Government Area in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia, lying roughly west and south of the city of Kalgoorlie. The Shire covers an area of convert|30400|km2|sqmi|0, and its seat of government is the town of Coolgardie, although the twin towns of Kambalda and Kambalda West contain two-thirds of the Shire's population.

History

The Shire began life as two entities - Coolgardie Municipal Council (1894), and Coolgardie Road Board (1896). As the gold rush waned in the area, the former was merged into the latter in 1921, and on 1 July 1961, it became the Shire Council following changes to the Local Government Act.
