The 2019 Western Australian Heritage Awards ceremony happened over the weekend and one Albany local has taken out the voluntary individual contribution award!
The Heritage Awards aim to acknowledge the exceptional contribution by heritage professionals, volunteers and organisations and celebrate their commitment to heritage conservation, adaptive reuse, interpretation and tourism across Western Australia.
Co-founder of the Jaycees Community Foundation Peter J. Snow has been recognised for his vision and drive helping transform a derelict whaling station into a unique heritage tourism operation.
Albany’s historic whaling delivers an authentic experience which allows visitors to absorb the history of the site and consider it against contemporary values.
