A world class rowing complex is the centrepiece of a new urban village at Champion Lakes. Ownership of the Lakes Regatta Centre was transferred to the WA Government’s facilities manager, VenuesWest, in January 2012.
Champion Lakes Commercial Precinct
A 15 hectare commercial precinct has been earmarked around the Champion Lakes Regatta Centre allowing businesses to take advantage of the opportunities provided by close proximity to the international sporting venue and high quality residential development at Champion Lakes.
Subdivision approval has been granted. This will deliver a range of mixed commercial lots, zoned R100, including a 4.6 hectare site reserved for a future White Water Park and hotel conference facilities.
Aboriginal Interpretive Centre
The Aboriginal Interpretive Centre at Champion Lakes is the first of its kind in Perth and provides a space where Nyoongar culture and heritage can be celebrated, discussed, strengthened and understood.
This is an exciting and significant development recognising the importance of the Nyoongar community in the Armadale and metropolitan area that will foster an enduring sense of ownership and pride in the community.
An Aboriginal Reference Group was established to guide the development, which includes an amphitheatre seating 350 people, interpretive walkway where local artefacts are displayed, and trails featuring bush tucker and medicine plantings. A metal canopy over the walkway will be also be used to display aboriginal art work with Nyoongar artists having been commissioned to produce three large-scale original pieces.
