Most of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is perfectly ok to live but probably the most desirable areas are Hannans, Lamington and Somerville, with West Lamington, Piccadilly and most of South Kalgoorlie not far behind. Need to be a bit careful about the Golden Grove or Adeline section of South Kal and South Boulder. Median rents are lower in Kal at around $390 than Perth at the moment generally as are median house prices at around $380,000. Other cost of living expenses are very similar and any that are much higher are generally offset by massively reduced transport costs, because everything is so close. It's quite easy for people to cut their fuel bills in the vehicles by half to two thirds. The other thing that tends to surprise new arrivals is the weather, which is much better than they expected, with warm sunny days that seldom get over the low to mid 30's and lovely balmy evenings.
