Questa Casa Historic Brothel

Questa CasaVerified verified


With its world famous corrugated-iron “starting stalls”, Questa Casa is the last of the original brothels built  during Kalgoorlies’ gold-rush era. It, like the others that followed, were subjected to Western Australias’ Containment Policy; an unofficial ‘official‘ government policy which was applied to selected naughty places trading illegally in the face of the WA’s Criminal Code.

Of all the illegal houses  that constituted Kalgoorlies’ infamous Hay Street, we are the only ‘gold-rush’ brothel left, and as such, have become one of Kalgoorlies’ must do‘ tours.

A curious cloak of gentility shrouds this frontage; the front belies the friendly interior. This house tells more of the town’s history and social attitudes than all the restored pomp of Kal’s gold-rush grandeur.  Once all the gates were decorated by under-clad ladies of the night… now most stand empty, a sign of the times.
