BOATERS – ROTTNEST IS OPEN

VISIT THE ISLAND

ENTER THE MARINE PARK

USE YOUR MOORING

Dear Members,

The Announcement that all Boaters have been waiting on: Boating Western Australia is pleased to let all Boaters know that the Premier has announced Phase 3 of the roadmap to ease Covid19 restrictions in WA – allowing Western Australians to enjoy more social and recreational activities and continue to get back to a more normal way of life. We thank the Premier and his Team for listening to the boaters of Western Australia.

THE BIG NEWS 
Rottnest Island will be reopened to visitors, overnight guests and boaters on Saturday 6 June 2020. The reopening includes the Island’s surrounding marine reserve.

Boating Western Australia would like to thank the boating community for playing their part and taking the restrictions seriously. It was a major concession for recreational boaters and what an amazing result in our efforts to halt Covid-19. .

Now that access has been granted, we will continue to urge the WA Government  that they consider the possibility of a rebate to moorings owners for the 8 weeks where they were unable to access their leased moorings at Rottnest. More to come…

Rottnest beckons – enjoy Boaters and BE SAFE!

ABOUT BEING SAFE !!   The rebuild of the Fuel Jetty is underway – hence the old  Fuel Jetty is being dismantled, and there is NO FUEL AVAILABLE!!
That will be the norm for quite some time!

So make sure that you have sufficient fuel to also get yourself home.
Remember the old rule of thumb – work out what you need and carry 50% more again!
We want you back here – SAFE!

See you in Thomson!
