‘Come in spinner!’ No trip to Kalgoorlie-Boulder is complete without visiting the only legalised Two-Up School in Western Australia.
Experience the aura and excitement of the traditional Australian gambling game, which involves the spinner throwing two pennies, on a kip (wooden board), into the air. Before the tossing of the coins, bets are made on whether they will land on heads or tails.
The pennies must be thrown at least two metres over the spinner’s head. They cannot come into contact with a person and they must land within the ring.
The ringkeeper controls the game.
The Kalgoorlie Two Up Shed still sports its original corrugated iron shed and bush ring.
