Bondi Pavilion Restoration & Conservation Project

Bondi Pavilion Concept Aerial

For over 90 years, Bondi Pavilion has been a central part of life for residents and visitors to Bondi Beach. From theatre to pottery, change rooms to ice rinks, ballrooms to music festival, the Pavilion has done it all. Now, our community and cultural centre is being restored for future generations to enjoy.

In June 2020, Buildcorp were announced as the head contractor to carry out the works, which are expected to take approximately 18 months.

This page is where we will post updates as construction on the project progresses, so please check back here regularly for the most up-to-date information.
