The Yaburara Heritage Trail is looking great after all the rain we have had. A huge diversity of species and good to see the Triodia (Spinifex) coming back. But weeds are getting in too now, so always good to take the plastic bag along and pull a few Kapok out!

100 people turned up to celebrate a milestone for Brida - its long term contract with Rio Tinto out of the new Dampier Depot. The Brida and NBAC Boards were present along with representatives from Rio Tinto, Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation and the City of Karratha. Brida now has 100, mainly Aboriginal people employed - a fantastic result. Thanks to hard working CEO Susan Shirtliff, Chair David Walker, to the many others involved in getting to this point - and of course, Rio Tinto.

Yesterday the Pilbara Regiment and our local RSL had an ANZAC Day memorial service for the local Lockyer brothers and all other indigenous servicemen who signed up in defence of their country in past wars. Held as usual at Whim Creek, commanding officer Lt Col Stuart Purves, Elaine Clifton - daughter of Elliot Lockyer and the Mayors of Karratha and Port Hedland all spoke. The country is looking beautiful after all the rain and it was good to catch up after with the NYFL crew at the Whim Creek Pub.

Lots of family fun was being had at the opening of the new Balyarra and Rothschild Parks in Baynton this morning. A beautiful development by Landcorp for the City of Karratha, it features WA's first pump BMX track, a mini AFL oval, rope challenge, water pumps and lots of shaded play space. The rope challenge is made from timbers out of Lang Hancock's original Dampier Jetty and the huge mahogany play log was saved from being mulched. A boab tree and poincianas were saved from local gardens and the parks are irrigated using Class A recycled water from Karratha's city-wide recycling scheme. And public art was done by our local indigenous artists! Thank you Landcorp for this terrific addition to our community.
