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 the businesses, events and attractions in Boulder, Western Australia.

  • Was declare a "Tourist Precinct" in the early 80's enabling all businesses to trade 24 x 7 in the hope of bringing a major player to Boulder.
  • In June 1999, a heritage area study was conducted to identify culturally significant places in the Kalgoorlie and Boulder town sites, and group them together into designated heritage areas for better planning, conservation and management. As a result of the study, 2 heritage precincts were created at Hannan Street and Burt Street.
  • Earthquake in April 2010 caused a lot of damage in Burt Street, closing it down for over a week, having a devastating effect on the small retailers.
  • There were some businesses that closed but the majority of businesses struggled through the  loss of income and are still operating today.
  • The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder and the Government of the day (Liberals) put in excess of 8 million dollars into the Burt Street Heritage Project which Boulderites considered the re-birthing of Boulder.
  • The Boulder Markets on the 3rd Sunday of the month, rain, hail or shine, has been a great Boulder attraction and is well supported by tourist and residents alike.
