CHAPTER thirteen

Gallipoli and gold; bars and brothels

Albany to Kalgoorlie

We explore Albany and its many parks to the east, west and north, including Stirling Ranges and Two Peoples Bay. We discover historical surprises, and visit a former whaling station. At Esperance, we look for marine mammals, and at Kalgoorlie, discover the mining town has shed its macho image.
