WA Government program for infrastructure upgrades for the Island’s water production and supply network.

Water Infrastructure

The WA Government has provided $150 million to the State's tourism industry as part of the $5.5 billion WA Recovery Plan.

An investment of $26 million has been allocated for vital infrastructure upgrades to overhaul Rottnest Island's ageing water production and supply network.

Strengthening the Island's infrastructure is a strategic focus area of the Rottnest Island Management Plan (RIMP) 2020-2024. The project will help to meet the needs of increasing visitation and ensure the long-term sustainability of Rottnest Island.

Estimated project completion
