Fimiston House was the name of the lease that Sue-Ella Prodonovich’s mother’s family grew up on in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. The house no longer exists, as it made way for the development of “The Superpit” – the largest open pit mine in Australia. In the event you need to look up our Australian Business Advisory number, you'll see that the entity name is 'Fimiston House' and that it is a discretionary trading trust. Prodonovich Advisory Pty Ltd acts as Trustee for Fimiston House.
