Time for the Gee-Gees

The Kalgoorlie Race Round is the high point in the local social calendar, with a week of horse (gee-gees in Aussie-speak) races, the World Two Up Championship, and a variety of events around Kalgoorlie, including a bush picnic. The Round has been running since 1896, and finishes with over half of the town partying at the Kalgoorlie Cup. It's held in the second week of September. Check www.kbrc.com.au.
