About Goolugatup Heathcote

Goolugatup Heathcote acknowledges the Beeliar people of the Noongar Nation on which GH is built. We recognise their continuing connection to the land, waters and community of this area and pay our respects to their elders past, present and future in the spirit of reconciliation.

The City of Melville’s Goolugatup Heathcote  is situated at Point Heathcote/Goolugatup on the site of the former Heathcote Mental Reception Home in Applecross and is now a heritage-listed public space.


It features a contemporary art gallery with rotating exhibitions of new and recent work by emerging and established artists as well as artists studios, an Artist in Residence program, stunning venues for hire and numerous public workshops and events. It is also home to a world-class restaurant and one of the most popular, award-winning playgrounds in the metropolitan area.
