Community Focused

The Rusty Pelican welcomes and caters for tourists, visitor and holiday makers alike, but it is our local community who are the Rusty’s core loyal patrons all year round.

Your purchase of bottled water through the Rusty Pelican gives us the opportunity to support a wide range of community groups. In the 2010 financial year as a direct result of our bottled water sales fundraiser we were able to distribute support to the value of $37,500.00 to local Rodney non-profit organisations. Thank you.
