Recent Throwback Galleries:

Its our favourite time of the week a chance to reflect on the changes in Esperance, the faces and the fun that was being had 10 years ago this week.

Making front page news at the end of May 2009, almost $170,000 from the shire's Royalties for Regions funds were allocated to refurbish and upgrade the Indoor Sport Stadium and Noel White Pavilion.

The Indoor Sport Stadium Management Committee later contributed an additional $25,000 to the project.

The state government announced plans to commit $20 million to build a sealed road from Hopetoun to Bremer Bay through the Fitzgerald River National Park in a bid to boost tourism.

Former Esperance Senior High School student Krista Moir was awarded the inaugural Wesfarmer's Indigenous Youth award at the WA Citizen of the Year ceremony.

The Friends of the Esperance Tanker Jetty were awarded $62,500 from the Magellan Metals Community Fund to conduct an underwater survey on the jetty.
