Rottnest Island Interpretive Signage
We recently completed the interpretive signage for Jubilee Hill and Bickley Battery on Rottnest Island for the Rottnest Island Authority.
Both Bickley and Julbilee Lookout were used during WWII and needed Interpretive Signage that informs tourists of the history of the sites. In 1942 Fremantle became the largest base for Allied submarines and supply ships in the Southern Hemisphere and a total of 2,500 troops were stationed on Rottnest Island. Many of these troops were women from the newly established Australian Women’s Army Service (AWAS), the Women’s Australian Auxiliary Air Force (WAAAF) and the Women’s Royal Australian Naval Service (WRANS).
Bickley Battery required four information panels about the ‘Women at War’. The panels explain the importance of the women who served in Rottnest during WWII along with beautiful photographs of the women on Rottnest Island throughout their service.
Jubilee Lookout required interactive signage showing tourists what they can see through the four lookout windows. There is a round panel on the floor for people to stand on and look out at all of the information arrows. Some of the arrows have photos of the historical sites to give a better idea of what to look for.
It has been a pleasure working with the Rottnest Island Authority on the two sites and look forward to working with them again in the future.
