Welcome to Boulder Promotion & Development Association

Boulder Promotion and Development Association (Inc), now commonly known as BPDA, was formed in 1993 with the aim of promoting businesses, events and attractions in Boulder, Western Australia.

The committee would like to inform everyone that it was voted to dissolve BPDA at the end of 2020

  • Boulder was declared a "Tourist Precinct" in the early 1980's, enabling all businesses to trade 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to bring more people to Boulder.
  • In June 1999, two heritage precincts were created - Hannan Street in Kalgoorlie and Burt Street in Boulder.
  • On April 10 2010, an earthquake reaching a magnitude of 5.0 on the Richter Scale rocked Boulder, resulting in extensive damage to the Burt Street precinct, closing it down for over a week and having a devastating effect on the small retailers. The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder and the Liberal Government of the day, granted funding in excess of 8 million dollars for the Burt Street Heritage Project to rebuild and restore the buildings and their facades. Some businesses closed down but the majority struggled through the loss of income and lengthy repair time, and are still operating today.
