Koombana Bay foreshore revitalisation
The Koombana Bay foreshore has been greatly revitalised with enhanced open space, accessible children's playground and community facilities, as well as areas for pop-up vendors, markets and concerts. It is now a popular venue for events.
The project included the construction of a landmark pedestrian bridge over The Plug, an amphitheatre, improved kiosk and public facilities, and revamped public areas and car parks.
Status: Officially reopened February 3 2018. Named Park of the Year in the Parks and Leisure WA Awards of Excellence for 2018.

A major redevelopment has transformed this tourist attraction. The centre's striking new-look building not only brings a visual 'wow' factor to one of the main approaches into the city centre, and but delivers a fresh experience for visitors. New features includes a interpretative centre incorporating 13 aquariums, and a cafe.
Status: Staged opening from December 2018. Official opening mid-February.
