Hotel Coolgardie


https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-cgbfg-e9f56f

Outback WA is often referred to as the Wild West and this documentary by Peter Gleason dives right into the wild side of remote pubs.

Located 50 kms west of Gold mining town Kalgoorlie sits the tiny town of Coolgardie , a self confessed ghost town of the Goldfields . The Denver Hotel is one of its main attractions , along with the local swimming pool.

The doco is centred around the Denver Hotel , and the experience of the two Finnish backpackers , Lina and Stephie , who found work there through a Perth based agency. Join me today as I give you my thoughts on Coolgardie , the bloke that ran the show and what I thought of the treatment of Lina and Steph .
