But for most, the island’s bus system is the answer to ex- ploring what is a bigger place than many first-timers imagine. Now that bus service is being improved and extended by the Adams Group. Adams, based in the Perth suburb of Malaga and the recipient of an extraordinary number of prestigious awards, has secured a 10-year contract with Rottnest Island Authority www.rottnestisland.com, promising to deliver an even-better service than was previously available. Under the agreement Adams will deliver the island’s Train Tour service, the Island Explorer timetabled bus service, the Geordie Bay/Kingston shuttle service and private bus charters for schools, weddings and corporate events. Managing director Adam Barnard said the group had big plans for Rot- tnest. “With our experience and investment, we will ensure the service increases capacity and introduces a new environ- mentally friendly fleet. “Adams will add four additional wheelchair accessible and air-condi- tioned buses to cater for the peak summer period.” The Adams Group, which launched 10 years ago with a single coach, op- erates a variety of services throughout WA. Meanwhile, Rottnest continues to grow as an events destination. Among recent conferences was the Global Eco with the theme of ‘eco tourism: navigating for success’ held at the Hotel Rottnest www.hotelrottnest. com.au and other island venues. And Rottnest Foundation www.rot- tnestfoundation.org.au has published a stunning calendar for 2016. The foundation notes that all sales revenue goes towards “ensuring that the island remains that special place we all love for its unique environmental heritage and cultural qualities”. Many of the photos in the calendar were provided by the foundation’s vice chair (and founder) Pat Barblett. It is available from Hotel Rottnest, Rottnest Express and other island busi- nesses (which also sponsored publica- tion) or on line.
