saint-barbaras-festivalThe annual Saint Barbara’s Festival, to be held on Dec 1 in Western Australia, has become an integral part of the Goldfields events calendar. The festival celebrates mining in the region and the local community.

 

The Miners Memorial Service is held in the square to honour the men and women who have lost their lives servicing the mining industry over the past century.

 

Undoubtedly the showcase of the St Barbara’s Festival is the Parade, a fun-filled extravaganza for the whole family! Thousands of people gather for the Parade to watch enormous pieces of mining equipment rumble down historical Hannan Street including an enormous KCGM Cat 793 Haul Truck standing six metres tall, eight metres wide and thirteen metres long!

 

Along with mining equipment, you can expect to see community organisations, schools, animals, prospectors and mines rescue demonstrations.
