A Coastal Walk trail is currently under development at Rottnest Island. Shane Kearney, the environmental coordinator at Rottnest, attended the Rottnest Society's AGM in August to give a presentation about the Coastal Walk Trail project. The trails will cover around 50 kilometers of the island. The project aims to preserve and protect the environment as well as raising the awareness of the environmental values cultural history by providing information signage around the walk.
Stage one of the project is currently underway with the removal of the old West End boardwalk, and a new environmentally friendly boardwalk is being built using sustainable materials, such as recycled plastics.
