The Ministry of Fun

The Ministry for Fun is guided by Adieu Financials’ Managing Director and former Mayor of Innisfail, Bill Wight. Bill has lived on Coochiemudlo Island for over 7 years, so he knows and deeply understands the island community.

Having worked in the financial industry for more than three decades, Bill knows how to get things done – which is why he’s an asset to the Ministry for Fun team and the community initiatives facilitated by the group.

Bill was a driving force in the successful Pirate Island event hosted at Coochiemudlo Island. Pirate Island was a day of pirate themed games, activities and role playing for kids which brought a crowd of visitors to the island several times a year.  Bill was also instrumental in establishing Coochiemudlo Island’s highly acclaimed ANZAC day service working in collaboration with Doug Cope and the Redlands RSL.

Bill is heavily engaged in the community and through his work with The Ministry of Fun, he strives to create opportunities that support Coochiemudlo Island locals.
