ABOUT THE REVITALISATION PROJECT

In June 2016, the State Government announced the Royalties for Regions investment of $10 million to undertake detailed feasibility studies and deliver transformational projects, reinforcing Chinatown as the cultural, historical and commercial centre of Broome.

The $12.7 million Chinatown Revitalisation project is being delivered in partnership by the State Government and the Shire of Broome, with $10 million funding from Royalties for Regions, $2 million from the Shire, and $700,000 from Tourism WA.

The project includes 10 sub-projects each designed to reinforce Chinatown’s position as the ‘Heart and Soul’ of Broome – the historic, cultural and hospitality centre of our town.

These sub-projects include feasibility studies for larger, potentially transformational projects, as well as design and construction of significant street and landscape upgrades to Carnarvon Street and Dampier Terrace to make the precinct more attractive and encourage activity.
