Midwest Times - - NEWS - Ge­off Vi­vian

Af­ter many years of op­er­a­tion the Bil­l­abong Road­house is to have of­fi­cial sta­tus.

Shark Bay shire pres­i­dent Ch­eryl Cow­ell said few peo­ple re­alised the road­house was on an old gazetted town­site called Wan­noo. “It is sur­rounded by pas­toral lease,” she said. “Over the years the road­house has just been us­ing an area of the pas­toral lease.”

Cr Cow­ell said the coun­cil had voted at last month’s or­di­nary coun­cil meet­ing to sup­port an area of land be for­mally ex­cised from the pas­toral lease so the road­house could have a li­censed rub­bish tip.
