Issue 14: Winter 2022

Welcome to the latest edition of MRO News

Welcome to our Winter edition of MRO News, coming to you just after National Science Week. 

I've been hearing all about the wildflowers making an early appearance with the recent rains, I hope you get the chance to venture out and see the sights.

This issue we welcome the newest member of the Site Entity team, Dr Mohamed Manoufali, our new RFI engineer.

We also have a new pastoral page on the MRO website, where info for our neighbours on anything pastoral and Boolardy Station will sit. The page currently hosts info on requesting access to Boolardy to muster. As always, folks are welcome to get in touch about the process if you have any questions.

Enjoy all the updates from across the MRO, until next issue,
