FOR PRESS: LBR PM. No. 81/ 1967
PRIME MINISTER TO VISIT W~ ESTERN AUSTRALIA
The Frime Minister will inspect a number of centres
concerned with the development of natural resources, particularly
mining, when he goes to Western Australia in S1eptember for the official
opening of the U. S. Naval Communication Station at North WVest Cape.
The itinerary, which is still in the planning stage, will
be designed to enable Mr Holt to see projects that he has not previously
vis ited. He will probably go to the mining town of Kambalda
( near Kalgoorlie), to Port Hedland to see the new port and loading
facilities for Mount Goldsworthy, to Dan'. pier and to Mount Tom Price.
On his way to the West he will make his first visit to
Woomera, to inspect the township and the Blue Streak launching area and
control installations. He will also spend a day IM Ferth.
He will make the tour between the 12th and 16th
September. CANBERRA, 2nd August, 1967.
I will be in touch later about press arrangements for covering this tour.

Press Secretary
