Seen me around Kalgoorlie Boulder and the Goldfields?

That’s because I get around. 

I loved living in Kalgoorlie Boulder. Since moving to KB over 15 years ago, I’ve made sure to be involved in our community. I show gratitude to those who have helped me by playing a role in building a stronger community, which welcomes change and is resilient when faced with challenges.

My favourite causes do not contribute as much to our economy as mining and manufacturing. By enriching our lifestyle with a high standard of services, education and social events, our standard of living and everyday happiness knows no bounds.

I champion for the tourism and arts & cultural industries.

 Kalgoorlie Boulder based projects:

I learned how to drive and operate a scissor lift during my time as the Project Assistant for Heartwalk CBD. I also designed, scripted and led the popular Walking Tours.

All things Art make my heart sing.

I have been very fortunate to have been appointed the Project Assistant for Heartwalk CBD. Over 2 years and under the direction of Creative Director, Paula Fletcher, Kalgoorlie Boulder has come alive with over 50 murals painted mostly by local Goldfield’s artists.

Keeping up the momentum in arts, my next project has been the creation and delivery of 8 short training videos for reference by tourism operators and arts practicioners based at over 600 culturally significant sites, encompassing 700,000 square kilometres of Western Australia as part of Our Gems WA.

Managed by Artgold, this huge (literally) project will provide for residents and visitors a central resource for discovering and following must-see attractions and events in our region.

Kalgoorlie Boulder is Film Friendly

A city built upon a traditional meeting place and rich gold vein, Kalgoorlie Boulder offers more than just your “outback Australia” vibe. The heritage architecture streetscapes and untouched (yes, it’s not all being mined.) desert flats and temperate woodlands offer film makers and tv crews multiple backdrops for old-timey shots and contemporary film.

KB and the Goldfields has been a popular choice over the years for filming and is currently the base for the popular Aussie Gold Hunters TV show.

If you need to speak with a local about where to shoot and where to obtain accommodation,  catering, casting and other services I’d be more than happy to connect you to my network. Please complete the contact form below if you are interested in filming in Kalgoorlie Boulder and the Goldfields.

Kalgoorlie Boulder is for families

My most recent project is close to my heart. As a Mum to four beautiful kids, all born in Kalgoorlie Boulder, having a nappy bag sized resource for all things to do with raising children in the Goldfields is a must have.

Contracted by Parenting Connection WA, the 2018 edition of the Kalgoorlie Boulder Kids Stuff Directory has been super fun to create. In partnership with the Kalgoorlie Boulder Early Years Strategy Group, this A5 booklet was put together based on the 2012 version but has a contemporary look and most importantly, up to date information for child care and education, health and wellbeing services, and fun stuff to do with kids in Kal.

You can grab a copy of the Kalgoorlie Boulder Kids Stuff Directory from your child’s school, childcare provider or child health nurse.

Dinner and a Blog:

For the past five years I have written copy for websites and print marketing that doesn’t include a  byline so  you imagine how chuffed I am to be attributed the author of this piece in the Esperance Tide  magazine.

If you need a review or opinion piece about attractions, food & drink or anything Kalgoorlie Boulder, I’d love to help you. I can write 25 words or 2300 (which was the total of the linked piece when only 500 was needed – I couldn’t help myself, Fervor Dining is delicious!)

I promise I’m not trying to be disruptive but I do like to ask questions

I recently created a Go Fund Me campaign. Ugh, I know, desperate hey?

My quest? I was seeking funds to be able to purchase a ticket to the KBCCI What’s Down the Track Forum. It’s an industry heads type of event, lots of presentations from leaders in mining, government (all levels)  and a smattering of tourism and liveability issues. Childcare anyone?

I posted the campaign at midnight and within 48 hours had not only enough to cover my ticket but a ticket for a friend and even change for some t-shirts.

I’m passionate about opening up opportunities for others and felt like I could be a conduit between the decision makers and the community those decisions affect.

Here I am! It was a long day but I’m happy with my 10 pages of notes and some cute promo gear from some of the booths. Oh, and I also won a double pass to the movies!  Copyright Abby Murray Photography
