Heathcote -

A creative urban village




The City of Melville had a Registrations of Interest (ROI) in mid 2017 calling for applications  from a range of diverse organisations and individuals to help us create a ‘must visit destination’ at the unique Heathcote site, Although we received many fantastic submissions there were gaps in the applications for some areas to fulfill our vision.

We are now conducting a specific ROI for one of our spaces located in the back of Swan House. We are looking for creative activation that could include but is not limited to; performance, music, theatre, workshops, night time activation and community events.

The Heathcote Cultural Precinct &
Lower Lands in Applecross is a state
heritage-listed site with a rich history
and a variety of current uses.

The cliff-top site and its adjacent riverside Lower Lands are a well known and iconic Perth location that has the opportunity to become one of the most vibrant and active destinations on the Swan River.

The heritage Heathcote buildings and surrounding parkland already host cultural and commercial activities. A variety of indoor and outdoor spaces at Heathcote are being used for a Museum and Gallery, Restaurant, Markets, Art Studios, relaxation and passive recreation.

The current leasing opportunity is for the back of Swan House at HCP, providing a great opportunity to create a diverse and unique mix of site uses that will attract visitors from across Perth metropolitan area and beyond.

Outdoor areas at Heathcote host music events, markets, celebrations and social gatherings for families and friends. The site features a renowned children’s playground and an established restaurant, both of which attract locals and visitors from across the metropolitan area.

Our goal is to secure long-term, short-term or temporary leases for this space in particular for cultural and commercial activities that will enable us to fulfil the exciting Heathcote Cultural Precinct Vision and Place Plan Project 2016-2025.
