The overall vision for Pinkys Beach Eco Retreat is to establish a vibrant and unique Beachside Eco Tent Retreat, catering for and accessible to all. It will be an iconic world class boutique offering a complementary but substantially different experience to what is offered on Rottnest currently, allowing guests an opportunity to experience nature in a way that leads to greater understanding, appreciation and enjoyment, while representing best practice for sustainable tourism.
The tents provide a unique world class Eco experience for visitors, and help to broaden the market appeal of Rottnest as an internationally recognised ‘must visit’ Tourism destination. The romance of the Eco Tents together with the awe-inspiring raw nature which abounds upon Rottnest creates the ideal pairing and something which will entice local, interstate and international visitors and groups to Rottnest year round.
The development comprises 86 three and four star safari style eco tents and beach club nestled behind the dunes at the famous Pinkys Beach Rottnest. The project has just recently gained development approval from the West Australian Government, with the resort due to open late 2018.

Broome Pipeline Pty Ltd (BPPL) has been operating in the fuel and oil distribution industry for over 13 years from Broome, one of Australia’s busiest ports.
BPPLL was formed as a direct result of the 1998 Department of Regional Development’s report that highlighted the need for a substantial upgrade to the then existing fuel bunkering capacity at the Port of Broome. Broome Pipelines proposed building and operating it’s current facility after both the existing Major Oil Companies that service Broome declined to invest any further capital in the Port.

This delivery platform is acknowledged as one of the most sophisticated assets of its type in Australia able to bunker large rig tenders, smaller commercial vessels and recreational vessels simultaneously, all to ISO14001 Environmental Management Standards.
