Key landmarks around Bunbury have been lit up in orange for the annual 16 Days in WA – Stop Violence Against Women campaign.

Aqwest joined with the City of Bunbury and the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions to help raise awareness of the importance of speaking out to stop violence against women and advocating on behalf of organisations that oppose violence.

The landmarks bathed in orange included the Marlston Hill Lookout, Koombana Bay Footbridge, Koombana Bay Foreshore, Marlston Waterfront, Guppy Park, the Navigators at the Koombana Drive roundabout, Richmond Reserve, the historic Arrol Crane at Jetty Road and Mangrove Cove lookout.

Aqwest staff also held a morning tea to promote awareness of the campaign.

“Everyone has a role to play in opposing violence against women and Aqwest is very proud to be supporting change in our community and our workplace,” said Aqwest Chief Executive Officer Gary Hallsworth.

“By lighting up Bunbury’s most iconic landmarks, including the entry statement to the city, it highlights this campaign to everyone coming in and out of Bunbury and helps promote this very important message.”
