Love Where We Live, Live Where We Love

Our Gems (Goldfields-Esperance Must-See) WA have launched a new song for the region which was proudly sponsored by RDA Goldfields Esperance.

The song is the brainchild of Our Gems WA Project Manager, Donna Malec. It was written by a local, Lynn Hazelton, sung by Chris Murphy and produced by Mark Donohue. The amazing film clip was created by Chuck Thomas of Remote Digital Imagery.

The lyrics and film clip highlight why people love being in the Goldfields Esperance region including tourist attractions and local favourite places and activities. You can watch the music video here
