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 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 June 2021.

Current Status

Town Jetty has recently been removed to make space for our new Estuary Pool. Removal of the remaining rock groyne adjacent to the jetty will take place in November. A brand new floating jetty (Tuckey Lane Jetty), will be installed and the existing Government Jetty upgraded and expanded providing increased boat parking opportunities. The jetty construction works will commence mid-November and will be completed before Christmas.

Construction works will be kicking off soon on the Estuary Pool and there with significant disruptions to the Eastern Foreshore south area starting late October/early November through to May 2021. Disruptions include the closure of the angle parking bays on the west (reserve side) of Mandurah Terrace from the car park to Smart Street. The construction site area will be fenced off and pedestrians will be redirected around the works.
