The heart of Mundaring will be transformed into an arts, culture and community showpiece, that paves the way for economic growth and tourism.

Shire of  Mundaring Councillors voted unanimously to kick start approval for the much needed and long-awaited Mundaring Town Centre Revitalisation and Multi-Purpose Community Facility (MPCF) project.

Shire President Paige McNeil said the project will position Mundaring for a future that opens the door to tourism opportunities with direct links to Mundaring’s renowned Sculpture Park, walking tracks and trails and sustainable residential options.

“This is about creating a new town and community centre for Mundaring and is one of the most significant and exciting projects for our Shire in over 100 years,” she said

“This project will create a contemporary heart and identity for Mundaring that celebrates our past, provides for our future and puts us on the map as an arts and cultural destination. This is our opportunity to showcase the unique hallmarks of our Perth Hills.”

Council endorsed a $20-$25 million budget to continue the initial implementation stage, while noting the priority to secure external funding to maximise benefits for our residents and ratepayers.

The approved budget will facilitate the development of a multi-story, multi-purpose Community Hub, with the potential for popular community services including an arts gallery, visitor centre, local history museum, contemporary library including a community toy library, community health clinic and shared community spaces. An important element will be the inclusion of commercial spaces to help offset some servicing costs.

"I’m super excited about this project! It will create a new town centre that’s a vibrant community cultural hub for residents and visitors to enjoy and a catalyst for economic growth and local job’s for our Shire.”
