The power of community

The fire destroyed big part of Busselton jetty in 1999. Rebuilding costs were estimated at around 1 million dollars, and neither municipality nor state government wanted to finance the process.

The community then took initiative, established a committee and managed a successful fund raising campaign, what resulted in reopening of the jetty for public visitors.

Active community, working together, can produce wonders. Especially if different individuals are able to agree as well as some other inhabitants of Australia.
