Karlkurla is a locality in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia. It is a suburb of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, and at the 2011 census had a population of 42 people. The names of Karlkurla and Kalgoorlie are derived from the same root, the local Aboriginal word for the silky pear.

Karlkurla takes in Kalgoorlie's north-western outskirts. It has only a small residential section, with a few dozen dwellings located close to the eastern boundary with Hannans. The Kalgoorlie Golf Course is located to the west of the residential section, and there is also a small industrial area in the south. Almost all of the rest of the locality is uncleared bushland. Despite its name, the Karlkurla Bushland Park (a local tourist attraction) is located within the suburb of Hannans, not in Karlkurla proper.
