Rodeo Camping Still A Possibility


The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics says it has not banned camping at the Noonamah Rodeo.

Instead it says it will meet with organisers of the event to provide a safe camping solution.

But Tony Innes from The Noonamah Tavern - organisers of the event - says until yesterday contact with the Department had been minimal.

"I'm happy to put some more effort, time and money into improving the camping area or setting up a designated camping area, but until I started making some noise they didn't want to know me," Mr Innes said.

Both Innes and the Department say they'll continue to work with together to identify a safe camping solution.

The Noonamah Tavern Rodeo is on Saturday the 26th of May.
