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 an 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 and new 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 late 2021.

Current Status

Works are well underway with the construction of walls that form the landside edge to the Estuary Pool and Beach areas taking shape. Stage one of the walling is now complete and the fabrication of the curved floating pontoon section is also progressing off-site.

Upgrades and expansion to the existing 'Government' Jetty and Construction of the new 'Tuckey Lane' Jetty are complete with both jetties being operational from January 2021.

There are disruptions to the Eastern Foreshore south area as the significant upgrade works take place. The construction site area is fenced off and pedestrians will be redirected around the works. The closure of the angle parking bays on the west (reserve side) of Mandurah Terrace from the car park to Smart Street will also be required at certain stages during the works.

The expected completion date for the Eastern Foreshore South Precinct is late 2021.
