Mandurah’s milestone Waterfront transformation project is officially underway, with the first stage of the project to be completed by late 2021.

The Eastern and Western Foreshores of Mandurah and surrounding areas are getting a make-over, making our City Centre an iconic precinct for people to meet, play and rest. Investing in a vibrant City Centre will support local tourism and jobs for long term economic well-being.

The redevelopment plans include a new Western Foreshore Recreation Precinct, Eastern Foreshore South Precinct and Eastern Foreshore North Boardwalk Precinct. Connecting the City Centre with the Waterfront is Smart Street Mall, which will also be transformed into a vibrant and welcoming pedestrian street.

The redevelopment commenced mid-2020, and will continue until 2023.

Project funding partners include the State and Federal Governments, and the City of Mandurah.
