Clear starry skies, a rich landscape colour palette and lots of sunny weather make for awesome walkabout weekend adventures. Whether you’re going camping, 4wd driving, fossicking for gold and gems or just out having lunch at Ora Banda we love seeing your shots of our backyard bush playground.
Closer to town, Heartwalk CBD, a two-year public art project, has rocked our socks and features in many happy family snaps and as an actual walking tour has created a guided opportunity for local gyms, scouts groups, and even the West Australian Ballet company! We believe that any #HeartwalkCBD image circulating the socialsphere is doing wonders for our gold town rep – and our general viewing pleasure as we gad about town.
And thats a wrap on 2017. What an amazing year full with new friendships old friendships and a new adventure for 2018. The goldfields has been our home for over ten years and as we say goodbye to 2017 we also say goodbye to this region taking forwards amazing memories, relationships and challenges. Thanks everyone for being in our lives. #welovekb #goldfields #newyearnewadventures

Day 20 of 30 My toddler (grumpy pants) woke up on the wrong side of his cot this morning, he was to put it nicely (how do I word this so I don’t get trolled to pieces) the total and utter opposite to happy and chilled out! So no time for breekie it was a dash for the door leaving hubby to deal with little pint size ball of fun 👌🏼popped into @just_a_little_cafe to grab a delicious smoothie bowl to eat in piece and quiet at work! Happy effing Monday!

Thanks for joining us on our journey as we celebrate all things awesome about our unique lifestyle here in Kalgoorlie Boulder and the Goldfields. When you hashtag #WeLoveKB it’s not so much about getting those likes and instant gratification. You are a part of a bigger movement to showcase KB for what this city really is – vibrant, supportive and a hell of a lotta fun!
We definitely do have to make our own fun sometimes, we’ll close off this blog piece with some warm fuzzy moments from the #WeLoveKB archives of community events and red dirt weekends.
