Bondi Pavilion Amphitheater Options to Explore


Waverley Council has voted to consult industry experts, local artists and other stakeholders about the creation of a refurbished amphitheater at the Bondi Pavilion.

The amphitheater would take the form of a landscaped performance space in the backyard of the iconic Beach Hall which the Council is restoring and set to reopen to the public later this year.

Last month, Council passed a Mayor’s Minute which calls for “initial consultation with key stakeholders, including industry experts, the arts and culture committee and local practitioners, to determine a survey process that will help identify best practice principles and context for progressing the amphitheater project”.

Mayor Masselos said the survey will focus on a “heritage-friendly” amphitheater landscape in the courtyard that will be a popular space for performances and for people to relax and recreate.

“An enclosed outdoor venue, the amphitheater would provide a unique experience that would capture a quintessential Bondi experience under the stars,” Mayor Masselos said.

“Now that our restoration is nearing completion, the time has come to resume investigations of the amphitheater, including heritage considerations, a business case for performance space, a community consultation program, and design and costs. estimated,” said Mayor Masselos.

“There’s a lot to consider and a lot of feedback to get, but we’re looking forward to understanding the details of this wonderful potential new performance space within the pavilion.”

A report will be provided to Council detailing the results of the initial consultation and a plan for investigation, with the community to be kept informed.

Council catering includes:

  • A renewed art gallery
  • flexible cultural spaces including the new “Bondi Story Room”
  • two places to eat (a restaurant and a café)
  • larger pottery workshop including a second kiln
  • new toilets, showers and a family and accessible bathroom and a space to change
  • Extensive renovations and upgrades to all existing single rooms in the pavilion
  • landscaped courtyard spaces
  • new grand entrance to the north and creation of additional east-west connections through the pavilion
  • better connection from Campbell Parade to the waterfront
