Boulders Hidden SecretsGolden Footsteps - Boulder's Hidden Secret


The Boulder Promotion and Development Association (BP&DA) saw the potential in bringingto fruition the "Historic Walk" planned by Boulder's Hidden Secrets.  Council was approached to apply for a Centenary of Federation grant for an "Interactive Walk".  

The Centenary of Federation Committee granted $20,000 to have seventy - two granite plaques made to commemorate people, places and events important in the history of Boulder as a part of the City's four million dollar "Streetscape" redevelopment project.

Compiling the information for those people nominated by the general public was not easy for the editor, Geraldine Hallahan, and she was the first to concede that other illustrious names could be added to the list.

 Nonetheless, our thanks go to her, her predecessor - the Boulder's Hidden Secrets Group - who initially did all the hard work to put this booklet together, and her successors - the Boulder Promotion and Development Association - who sourced more information to ensure the booklet was kept up - to - date when new plaques were laid in Burt Street.

The BP&DA placed an advertisement in the Kalgoorlie Miner newspaper calling for nominations of deceased early Boulderites with a short account of the nominees' life from the public.  

The resulting "Interactive Walk" and accompanying booklet is the culmination of many hours of work and the common goal to promote Boulder and reveal its colorful history for all to enjoy Sunday 28th October 2001 marked to the launch of the "Interactive Walk" and booklet and the completion of stage one of the city's "Streetscape" project.  

On that occasion the October Boulder Market Day coincided with the "Back to Boulderfest" organised by the BP&DA, where the many descendants of the pioneers were welcomed to enjoy the occasion.

Available from the Loopline Railway Museum, Santamara's Grocery Mart and the Kalgoorlie Visitor Centre  RRP $10.00
