Rottnest Carnivale was held on Saturday 29th of October this year.

Rottnest Foundation had an information tent set up on the lawn in front of the DOME and also had another trestle table set up outside the General Store in the Settlement.

Thanks to Courtney and Trish Wheatley, Pauline McMullan and Rosalie Small for manning the 20161029_090249morning shift and to the ‘King’ family (Jeff, Heather and Sam) and John Smoker for manning the afternoon shift.

rf-carnivale-2016-003We sold Rottnest Raffle Tickets, Rottnest Foundation 2017 Calendars and Rottnest Foundation merchandise (wide brimmed hats, tote bags and caps).

We raised $817.50 on the day, which will go towards our Island environmental, cultural and heritage projects.

rf-carnivale-2016-039We also promoted the Margaret River Chocolate Company’s new ‘Chokka the Quokka’ initiative, where $2 from every Chokka sold will go towards the Rottnest Foundation to support quokka conservation in WA.

Thousands of people came to the Island to enjoy the free festivities and entertainment and it was great to see so many families enjoying the day. The kids had a fantastic time! rf-carnivale-2016-029
