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.

Awesome to see @kylehughesodgers at work in Kalgoorlie as part of @heartwalkcbd 🙌

We country folk love a reason to get dolled up. Spring Racing Carnivals, Opera at the Goldfields Arts Centre and fringe style soirees such as the KCGM Heartwalk Shut Down Party keeps retail, hair & beauty and wellness providers abuzz all year round.


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.

A bit of school night long exposure, finally getting to shoot on the salt flats!
