First sod turned at Amberton Beach cafe and bar

05 March 2019

Construction on a new café and bar at Stockland’s Amberton Beach community at Eglinton has begun with an official on-site ceremony celebrating the launch of the highly-anticipated oceanfront venue on Friday, 22 February.

Mayor Tracey Roberts, Attorney General and Minister for Commerce John Quigley and Col Dutton, General Manager for Residential at Stockland, turned the first sod at the 1.5-hectare site which is nestled atop the sand dunes with overlooking the stunning Indian Ocean.

Mr Dutton said the official launch represented a major milestone for the seaside community, which is set to become even more popular with the addition of the exciting new facilities.

“We have worked closely with the City of Wanneroo and local stakeholders for many years to ensure we can deliver the best possible amenities in the Amberton Beach community,” Mr Dutton said.

“The location of the café and bar is sure to be a drawcard for residents, with unsurpassed views thanks to its hilltop positioning 16 metres above sea level.”

John Dawkins, owner of CY O’Connor in Perth and Hybla Tavern in Albany, was recently announced as the operator of the new Amberton Beach attraction which will host up to 200 guests once it opens in December 2019.

Attorney General and Minister for Commerce John Quigley said the new venue will be an asset to the local community.

“It’s great to see a unique community amenity like this being delivered in the north-west corridor,” Mr Quigley said.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the launch of the new venue and the associated community facilities will provide local residents and visitors with an exciting new leisure space to enjoy along the great coastline of the Wanneroo region.

I would like to thank the Stockland team for their vision and continued investment in our city. This project supports the city’s approach to place activation, helping to create more distinctive and vibrant areas for our community while providing a range of new employment opportunities for local people.”

The venue will neighbour a newly-developed foreshore playground and green space complete with barbecues, seating and wash-down showers, as well as a new car park and stairway access directly to the beach.

Amberton Beach is growing in popularity, with a new skate bowl, AFL-sized sports field, outdoor exercise stations, Pirate Playground, Scooter Park and network of cycleways and footpaths providing fun destinations for families.

The Amberton Beach community will ultimately comprise more than 2,500 dwellings ranging from freestanding homes to townhomes. House and land packages start from $330,990.
