Rottnest Foundation Chairman’s Report- 19th October 2014

The Rottnest Foundation AGM was held on the 19th Oct.

We began with the official AGM in the morning, followed by a delicious lunch at Aristos.

IMAG4302After lunch, the Rottnest Island Authority Wadjemup Bidi Coordinator Eilidh acted as our tour guide and showed us the progress that has been made with the Wadjemup Bidi.

The trail is truly a great initiative for the Island. We were blown away by what has been accomplished so far and the areas of Rottnest the trail opens up for access that previously were not available.

We are very proud of boardwalk that has been installed along the Gabbi Karniny Bidi, of which we contributed $100,000 via a grant received from the Department of Sport & Recreation (supported by Lotterywest). It is a magnificent asset to the Island.

P1000587We finished up with a quick pint at the pub, before boarding the ferry to go home. A great day was had by all who attended.
