Wanneroo Mayor and Two Rocks Volunteer Marine Rescue Group Patron Tracey Roberts said the announcement by Transport Minister Dean Nalder for the $1.17 million upgrade would significantly benefit local boat owners and the volunteer marine rescue.

"Enjoying the terrific maritime environment the City boasts is a big part of Wanneroo lifestyle. This upgrade will benefit many locals including our Two Rocks Volunteer Marine Rescue Group," she said. 

"The not for profit organisation has been assisting the Western Australian boating public since 1991,” she said.

“The group is operated by those who willingly dedicate their time to provide on-the-water assistance, radio coverage, finance reporting, training and maintenance of equipment for the local and wider community.

“They rescue and help vessels in distress and it is vitally important they have the facilities they need to do their job effectively.”

Two Rocks Volunteer Marine Rescue Group has more than 40 active volunteers who provide boating assistance seven days a week.
“Our northern corridor is a rapidly growing, thriving community heavily involved in recreational sports,” Mayor Roberts said.
“The City is looking forward to continued State Government work to upgrade this popular and important facility.”
