Volunteers of the Wildcare group Friends of Tasman Island & Wildcare Board member, Shane Pinner, attended the unveiling of a plaque on Tasman Island recently.
In conjunction with a visit to the island by Rotary visitors, the plaque, dedicated to lighthouse keepers and their families was installed at the Tasman Island lighthouse.
There were over 80 visitors to the island that day, with tours of the lighthouse arranged in co-operation with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority.
