Proposed Upgrades

We are working hard to create a vibrant City Centre for our community to meet, play and rest. The project is also aimed to help improve Mandurah’s standing as a tourist destination giving a boost to the economy now and in the future.

The key proposals for the Eastern Foreshore South Precinct include:

  • An enclosed swimming area in the location of the historical ‘Robert Day Memorial Pool’ with iconic circular floating jetty platform, terraced steps and ramp to access the water and adjacent shade and seating.
  • Upgraded beach area with ramp access, adjacent boardwalk and seating areas.
  • Upgraded jetty and boat parking facilities.
  • Ticketing outlet to facilitate water-based recreation and tourism opportunities.
  • Upgraded grass and paved activity space connecting foreshore and City Centre.

There was overwhelming community support for the Eastern Foreshore South Precinct proposals. A summary of the Community Engagement process and findings is available here.

Council adopted the concept plans for the Eastern Foreshore South Precinct at its meeting on 26 February 2019. Since this time, a lot of planning, investigation and design development in collaboration with consultant Coastal Engineers has taken place as well as further stakeholder engagement .The concept plan for the Eastern Foreshore South Precinct has been updated to reflect the design progression.

Funding has been committed to implement the Eastern Foreshore South Precinct Proposals commencing in the 2019-20 financial year with completion by June 2021.

Current Status

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are exploring new ways to proceed with the project and engage with stakeholders during this process.

We are in the process of procurement for the jetty upgrades and construction. The 'Design and Construct' tender for these works has been advertised and will remain open until mid-April. The next stage for the Eastern Foreshore Precinct project is to further develop the designs for the rest of the upgrades to facilitate project delivery and construction.
