Chinatown to be officially opened as Revitalisation Project completed
Published on 27 October 2021
The Shire of Broome is holding a community event for the official opening of Stage 2 of the Chinatown Revitalisation Project on Friday, November 5.
Broome’s town centre has been refreshed over recent years thanks to funding from the Shire and the State Government, with the $29.3 million project now completed.
The Broome community have been extremely patient during the construction phase and the result is the hustle and bustle of a refreshed Chinatown, enriched with culture, art and positive energy.
This special event will include food vans, live music, yarns from long-term Broome locals, buskers, art activities, face painting for kids and extended opening hours for Chinatown traders.
Enjoy an evening in Chinatown before the wet season well and truly hits with a free community event, with the festivities to commence at 5pm.
Live music will be played at the new stage on Short Street and an official ribbon cutting will be conducted to officially open and welcome all to the new Chinatown.
Shire of Broome president Harold Tracey said it promised to be a great event to showcase Chinatown in all its glory and to thank those that made the project happen.
“This is a special piece of Chinatown’s history and is an event not to miss,” he said.
“Chinatown is the heart and soul of Broome and with all the activities running, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
“Chinatown looks spectacular at night due to the unique artwork installed along Dampier Terrace and Napier Terrace. This will be a great evening event – come along and see Chinatown come to life.”
