Development of a masterplan for Bundilla Beach
A masterplan is being created to activate and transform the amenity of the Bundilla Beach area and create more opportunities for recreation and leisure.
Input has been sought from the community, via the consultation that ran from Monday 16 October 2023 and closed on Sunday 12 November 2023, to inform the design of a staged and prioritised masterplan that revitalises Bundilla Beach across the short, medium and longer term.
For the masterplan’s first stage (short term), the Northern Territory Government has committed $3 million and City of Darwin has contributed $0.5 million for a total of $3.5 million to reinvigorate the area.
Construction of the first stage of the masterplan is scheduled for delivery in 2024, to enhance Bundilla’s natural beauty while delivering more recreation opportunities and a higher level of amenity.
The masterplan’s proposed first stage works that are intended to improve usage and amenity include:
• additional public lighting
• 3 x 3 basketball court
• greenspace irrigation
• additional BBQ tables and shelters
• street food enabling infrastructure
• additional toilets
• improvements to pathways
• improvements to parking
• a dog park
Phase two is the development of a longer-term masterplan that will reflect the consultation results identifying medium and long-term uses of the Bundilla Beach area delivering on the community’s needs, aspirations and priorities for the space for years to come.
