What do our trailblazers say?
Hundreds descended on Perth city in October 2018 as we celebrated WA’s #heartofgold a year on from the launch of Perth’s first virtual interactive gold trail, and nearly 1,000 came out for the launch of Kalgoorlie’s Heart of Gold Discovery Trail in June 2018, to celebrate 125 years since gold was first discovered there. Here is what some of our trailblazers have said.
