Wadjemup / Rottnest West End Redevelopment Artworks

Wadjemup (Rottnest Island) is a thriving tourist and recreational destination, a place that has shaped the memories, connections and experiences of countless people.

Its cultural significance, is first and foremost to the Whadjuk Noongar people who have been connected to the island for more than tens of thousands of years. The West End of the Island with its abundant wildlife and rugged coastline looks out to Kooranup, located on the horizon in the deep ocean west of the Island.

The West End is a sacred and beautiful place, a place for reflection, appreciation of the wonder of nature and a place of acknowledgement for the continuing rich culture of Australia’s First Nation communities. The Rottnest Island Authority is currently planning the redevelopment of several key recreation and visitor amenity sites across the Island. The public art projects outlined in this EOI Artist Brief are aligned with The West End redevelopment works and are a key part of the Rottnest Island Management Plan 2020-2024.

The West End Artworks will be integrated into the landscape design and will continue to enrich and grow the contemporary Aboriginal heritage of the Island and provide meaningful experiences for visitors to this sacred place.
