After the success of their trip to Albany, Ocean Star’s Independent Living Villa (ILV) residents couldn’t wait to hit the road again. On this trip they braved the 730km and 10 hour journey from Bunbury to Kalgoorlie - but unlike the prospectors who made the journey on foot during the Gold Rush, they enjoyed the creature comforts of a bus.
The ILV residents marvelled at the sheer scale of the massive Super Pit, had an enlightening tour of the last working bordello in Kalgoorlie and visited the ghost towns of Menzies and Gwalia, as well as the North Kalgoorlie Tourist Mine. They finished their epic journey at the must-see Museum of the Goldfields before returning home to Bunbury.
A huge thank you to ILV Committee President Graeme Wills for making this trip (and many other activities) possible.
