Esperance Rotary hosts fun-filled Australia Day celebration

Families flocked to Adventureland Park to celebrate the nation and enjoy the sunshine at the Rotary Club of Esperance's Australia Day fair on January 26.

A crowd of hundreds enjoyed a great lineup of family-friendly activities, market stalls, food and live music from local acts including Rachel Vibart and the Esperance Brass Band.

Many volunteer organisations showed their support with the Esperance Vintage Car Club, volunteer bushfire brigades, Hope FM and the Mechanical Restoration Group all hosting stalls.

Rotary Club of Esperance committee member Barry Rolland said the group had received excellent feedback from stallholders and patrons.

He said a highlight of the day was to see children enjoying a range of fun games and activities coordinated by the Apex Club of Esperance and the Rotary Club of Esperance Bay.

"There were a lot of kids entertained and that was the most enjoyable thing to see," he said.

"There was also a good crowd to see the shire presentations and that would've been a highlight for a lot of people."

Mr Rolland said the group were proud to be supporting national bushfire relief by donating proceeds from the event to the Rotary Bushfire Appeal.

"When stallholders were told the money they were donating to Rotary was all going towards the bushfire appeal I think most people felt quite happy to spend some money," he said.

Mr Rolland thanked all the local clubs and volunteer who contributed to another successful Australia Day celebration.

"I think the Rotary Club and members put a lot of effort into making the day run well, it is not just one person but the whole club and they all get together and do their part," he said.

"It is a pleasure to see that we all work together with the service clubs and volunteer organisations to make it a successful day and that's what it is about."
