Transform Mandurah is Phase 3 of the City's response to COVID-19 and includes a series of projects that align to the Mandurah Matters Strategic Community Plan 2020 - 2040, under the Economic Focus Area.

Transform Mandurah is focused on leveraging our waterways, whilst giving our environment a voice. The City plans to work with its partners to reposition Mandurah around the water economy.

Mandurah will establish its place as a leading national and international provider of water technologies, science, research, education and training with a focus on growing related agricultural and environmental industry clusters.

Acknowledging our location on one of the nation’s most important waterways, Mandurah has a natural competitive advantage in the water sciences, complemented by parallel initiatives in the Peel Food Zone, the Peel Business Park, the Agri-Innovation Precinct and the Peel Integrated Water Initiative.

The Transform Mandurah Plan comprises three programs:

  1. The Water Economy
  2. Mandurah’s City Centre Redevelopment
  3. The Conference Centre Precinct

The Plan identifies a number of core projects that will catalyse the city economy:

  • The Australian Waterways Centre of Excellence (AWCE)
  • The Waterways Data Array (WDA)
  • The relocation of civic services into the City Centre
  • The redevelopment of the existing City of Mandurah three-hectare site into a new Conference Centre and Tourism precinct

The goals of the redevelopment are to reposition Mandurah as the home of water research, technology and associated Industry links and to build on its day trip tourism status by:

  • Increasing the level of pedestrian and professional activation in the town centre, activating a new civic heart and creating a coordinated set of attractions to give visitors, workers and residents a reason to be in the city.
  • Focusing the Water Economy into an active clustering of industry partners creating a collaborative environment encouraging jobs and growth.
  • Improving the standard of commercial and retail buildings to enhance the visitor and workforce experience.
  • Building on the success of the City’s events attraction campaign with increased accommodation and a Conference Centre.

Transform Mandurah properly positions the Peel Region within the State economy, with Mandurah as its capital by exploiting its unique comparative advantages around national water industries and their environmental, tourism and agricultural linkages.
