The Esplanade Dining Precinct is a project opportunity identified in the City Centre Master Plan which was developed through a comprehensive engagement process undertaken by Council in 2018.

The Esplanade Dining Precinct project will enhance the best features of the existing Esplanade outdoor dining area. It aims to create more space for dining and seating, improve views to the parklands and increase pedestrian connections. The project will deliver a more vibrant outdoor dining experience, contributing to the city’s liveability for locals and creating a major drawcard for visitors.

Council has progressed the project opportunity and now developed a concept design for the Esplanade Dining Precinct that visually represents the key design elements identified in the Master Plan.

For more information:

Following the consultation period, a detailed design of the Esplanade Dining Precinct will be prepared for further consideration.
