We're taking underused areas and converting them into thriving destinations. Just look at what has been achieved for the Koombana Foreshore. From the Dolphin Discovery Centre to the new pedestrian bridge, new life has been breathed into this stretch of prime waterfront land. And that's just stage one.
More transformations are planned in stages two and three. The focus areas will be the Jetty Road Causeway, Casuarina Drive and Casuarina Boat Harbour.
In much the same way as the redevelopment of industrial land into a thriving residential and hospitality precinct at Marlston Hill changed people’s perceptions of Bunbury, this game-changing project is delivering a similar leap forward.
The suite of development projects is designed to improve public amenity, provide infrastructure to support the growth of the marine industry, stimulate tourism and reconnect the central business district to the waterfront.
The project is enhancing prime waterfront land for community use, and better connecting the central business district to the waterfront. We also expect it will unlock the city’s tourism and marine industries. It’s about creating job and business opportunities for local people.
