AUSTRALIA'S OLDEST BROTHEL QUESTA CASA


HAY STREET Kalgoorlie is the home of Australias' oldest working brothel

Questa Casa is one of the world's longest operating brothels.

At least 114 years old, Questa Casa, aka "The Pink House", at number 133 HAY STREET, is the ONLY original brothel remaining from Kalgoorlies famous gold rush. The other remaining Hay Street brothel is "The Red House". According to council records its building permit was issued October 1980, which explains the modern look.

Historical brothel Questa Casa offers tourists the unique opportunity to experience life from a bygone era.

Questa Casa is the only brothel that has the famous "STARTING STALLS".

Still operating, the girls throw open these infamous doors nightly.

The guided tour lasts about approximately 1&1/4 hours and takes you through the historical working areas of the house:- through the starting stalls at the front where the ladies first talk to the gentlemen (sometimes they are caught doing other things!!), and through rooms which the ladies use every night, the same rooms that have been used since this house was established. The cramped rooms (freezing in winter, stifling hot in summer), give a unique insight into the life of those who frequented these world famous illegal houses.

Hear stories of how it was in "old" Kalgoorlie, for the ladies and those often lonely miners who visited them.

Discover why, despite complaining bitterly about the working conditions, the ladies flocked here and kept coming back time and time again.

***********************
AGE LIMITATION APPLIES TO THIS TOUR! Due to the fact that Questa Casa is an operating brothel, it is a government regulation that nobody under the age of 18 is allowed on the premises

*******************************
Due to the fact that the building is so old and the nature of its design, the tour is unsuitable for persons with mobility restrictions.

About Us

Kalgoorlies' "QUESTA CASA" is one of the worlds longest operating brothels. Built at the turn of the 20th century (for those not good with centuries, that was 114 years ago) Questa Casa is the ONLY original brothel in Kalgoorlie

News

"this near-derelict row of tin sheds, each little bigger than a chicken coop, probably tells more of the towns history and social attitudes than all the over-restored pomp of Kalagoorlies gold-rush grandeur" wrote Dr Elizabeth Farrelly, Good Weekend, June 2005, when she named Questa Casa as one of Australias top 12 buildings.

Dr Farrelly is a Sydney architect, writer and critic on architecture, urban design, public arts and art theory.
