Project Type



Start: Mid 2018 Finish: Early 2021



The redevelopment of the wetlands precinct on Hope Road in Bibra Lake is a priority project for the City to upgrade a key community and environmental asset. The project involves:
  • Demolishing and rebuilding the main Native ARC building, with opportunities to re-use other elements of the site and materials in construction
  • Renovate and extend The Wetlands Centre to include an education room, dedicated scouts room, educational artificial wetlands and state of the art community nursery
  • Relocate the Scouts shed
  • Provide more parking and improved traffic and public access to and across the site
  • Create interconnected landscaped walkways and outdoor classrooms to support multiple uses and events
  • Ensure Ecological Sustainable Design features are included across all aspects of the project
The total project cost is expected to be $5.8M through a combination of municipal funding and Developer Contribution Funds (DCP13).

Concept Designs have been developed in consultation with key stakeholders. The concept designs have been out for public consultation. The Project Manager, Quality Surveyor and Architects have been engaged and work will now begin on developing the final design in order to commence construction towards the latter half of 2019. The new precinct should be completed by 2021.
