Follow Pirate Pete to treasure trove of fun
ROTTNEST Island volunteers will play the parts of Pirate Pete and his assistant as part of school holiday activities on the island over the next two weeks.
Despite donning the hat and swinging the sword last week, Rottnest Volunteer Guides Association vice-president Lyn LeProvost will stick to assisting the star of the show for island visitors.
Mrs LeProvost said she loved seeing the joy on the faces of the children, especially when they saw Pirate Pete.
“The kids loving chasing him around the settlement, picking up the gold and throwing him off the end of the plank,” she said.
Pirate Pete is among several activities co-ordinated by Rottnest Island Authority project manager Rebecca Smith over the next fortnight.
“There’s the Lakes Eco Walk, Creative Quokkas and the Rotto Rat Race,” Miss Smith, who has worked on the island for two years, said.
“The volunteers put on extra tours especially for the school holiday program and the quiz night is really popular.”
