Boost for Billabong
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.
