Works to make a difference

Mr Chester also said, "At the same time, there governments been seawall replacement works, a new toilet block, car park sealing and other projects by the Shire to improve the experience for locals and visitors.

"Bullock Island has been an under-utilised community asset for decades and these works will make a real difference. It's good to see all levels of government working together to improve facilities for locals and the visitor economy." Mr Chester said.
