Explore: Discover the Karlkurla Bushland Park in Kalgoorlie
Kulgooluh/Karlkurla” – is the name for the native silky pear. The Karlkurla Bushland Park comprises 200 hectares of natural regrowth bushland, along with over 2,000 trees and shrubs planted by community volunteers back in 2000. ‘Karlkurla’ (pronounced gull-gurl-la), is the local Aboriginal word for the Silky Pear, one of the many native bushes, trees and small plants that can now be enjoyed while strolling along the park’s 4km walking trail. Kalgoorlie Boulder Urban Landcare Group maintains a community nursery in Karlkurla Bushland Park, and the organisation’s Eco & Cultural Education Centre within the nursery grounds was opened in June 2017. The Community Nursery with its Eco & Cultural Education Centre represent a space for the sharing and conveying of conservation and sustainable living – focussed ideas, while fostering inclusion, skill development and personal well-being for the community and visitors.
