Bianca Rine­hart celebrates a mile­stone birth­day in style.

She is an heir to Aus­tralia’s largest min­ing dy­nasty, with a fam­ily blood­line steeped in Western Aus­tralian soil, so it was only fit­ting that Bianca Rine­hart chose a rooftop venue in her home­town of Perth to cel­e­brate her 40th birth­day.

For a woman who is un­com­fort­able be­ing the cen­tre of at­ten­tion, the gath­er­ing was a per­fect op­por­tu­nity for close friends and fam­ily to come to­gether at Como the Trea­sury’s Wild­flower rooftop restau­rant to help the el­dest Rine­hart daugh­ter cel­e­brate. Her young fam­ily – hus­band Sasha and son Ni­cholas – at her side, a long and pub­lic court bat­tle won, Bianca is in a happy place and wanted her peo­ple around her for this very pri­vate party.

The room was a dy­namic mix of cre­atives; ti­tans of min­ing and com­merce; political lead­ers, in­clud­ing Julie Bishop; for­mer Olympian Ian Thorpe; phi­lan­thropists; “adopted” fam­ily; and trusted sup­port­ers, all show­ing the depth and breadth of Rine­hart’s circle. DJ Dai­mon Downey turned the din­ner into a dance party un­der the stars into the early hours. As Bianca’s hus­band Sasha ob­served in his speech, Wild­flower was a fit­ting venue for his wife, “wild at times but nat­u­rally gen­tle, lov­ing and car­ing”.

Dur­ing the evening, Bianca de­clared: “To our deputy leader and Min­is­ter for For­eign Af­fairs – Julie – you are sim­ply amaz­ing and an in­cred­i­ble role model for all of us girls try­ing to make a dif­fer­ence in the world.”
