Help shape the future of Wadjemup / Rottnest Island

The draft of the latest Rottnest Island Management Plan 2023-28 (RIMP) is now open for public comment.

The RIMP captures Rottnest Island Authority’s priority tourism, recreational, infrastructure, environmental, cultural and heritage initiatives for the next five years.

The draft has been divided into five strategic focus areas:

  1. Diversify the visitor base and enhance visitor experience
  2. Deliver sustainable island infrastructure and services
  3. Respect and engage the island’s cultural heritage
  4. Explore and conserve the island’s environment
  5. Foster strong partnerships

The focus areas are supported by key initiatives designed to renew existing island services, deliver dynamic and sustainable infrastructure change, while conserving the island's unique natural attributes.

The key initiatives reflect an ongoing commitment to accessibility and enhancing visitor experience, with a renewed focus on amenity and the island’s environmental and cultural heritage values, especially the Aboriginal heritage values via initiatives such as the Wadjemup Project.

We encourage the public to review the draft RIMP (12MB PDF) and provide feedback to ensure the plan reflects the community's needs and aspirations. 

Feedback can be submitted by:

Submissions close at 5 pm on Tuesday 9 May 2023. For more information on the RIMP process, visit the Frequently Asked Questions.
