Rottnest Island Mooring Information Night



The Rottnest Island Authority have been working on a range of initiatives to improve the Rottnest experience including the new Jetty facilities and a new booking system for rental moorings.

One of the major changes taking place is the introduction of a more simpler administration of the waiting list for mooring site licences. From July 1, applicants no longer need to renew their applications annually in order to remain on the waiting list. Applicants will continue to receive an annual prompt to check that their details are up to date, and to advise them of their position on the wait list, but they will not have to contact RIA, except to advise of changes.

With so many changes taking place RIA will be holding an information evening providing an update on these intiatives.

In addition RIA will be providing information and seeking feedback on the draft Rottnest Island Management Plan 2020 - 2024 and to provide the results of the 2019 RIA Boating Survey.

Bookings are Essential!!!
Please book by calling Reception on (08) 9386 6437 or email
