Margaret River HEART 

The new Margaret River HEART building will provide a multi-purpose, highly flexible entertainment and business events complex which both meets the needs of the current population and caters for projected population and visitor growth. The transformational project developed initially under the SuperTown Program and involves a major redevelopment of the 36-year-old Margaret River Cultural Centre and the adjoining 40-year-old squash court and basketball facilities.

The project is made possible thanks to a series of successful grant funding approvals totalling $6.75m including:
$1.8m National Stronger Regions Fund Grant
$1.4m Lotterywest Grant
$.5m Regional Venues Improvement Fund Grant
$3.05m  Growing the South Royalties for Regions Grant
