Picture shows the "Holden-on-room" where the bed is a mock-up of an Australian-made made vintage Holden motor car in Langtrees 181, Kalgoorlie's premier brothel in outback Western Australia. The room, which is one of several theme rooms, is on the agenda of regular brothel tours patronised by tourists visiting the gold mining town. But tourism and industry chiefs of the outback mining town who want to clean up its wicked redneck image and promote its turn-of-the-century architecture, are pitted against others who believe "skimpies" and world-renowned brothels are its sole claim to fame.

RING KEEPER PREPARES TO PULL THE PLUG AT AUSTRALIA'S ONLY LEGALISED BUSH TWO UP SCHOOL NEAR KALGOORLIE IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA.


Ring keeper John prepares to turn out the light after an evening game at Australia's only legalised bush two up school near Kalgoorlie in Western Australia June 10, 2001. The unique game, which can be traced back to convicts, sees a tosser (spinner) of two pennies bet against the ringkeeper by trying to get the coins to land "heads". The game is played every day of the year except Christmas Day and Good Friday but its popularity is dwindling forcing the operators to consider a city venue instead of the bushland setting.

MOUNTED POLICE PATROL KALGOORLIE'S MAIN STREET IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA.
Mounted policemen constables Kevin McDonnell (L) and David Egan (R) patrol the main street of Kalgoorlie June 7, 2001. The mounted police will carry out frequent patrols of the city in a move that has angered some locals who say the police minister, in a pre-election promise, said there would be a permanent Mounted Police Unit in the city. The police minister has decided with the police commissioner on more cost-effective regular patrols.
