Rich in heritage and full of potential

Our vision for Midland is to create a thriving city that attracts businesses, residents and tourists to Perth’s eastern corridor.

Midland was built on industry and innovation. Once home to more workers than any other employer in Western Australia, the iconic Railway Workshops were the centre of social and community life for generations of workers until their closure in 1994. One of the driving forces behind this project is to bring back the vibrancy, vitality and opportunities Midland previously enjoyed — with a modern twist.

A local and regional centre

Midland is an important retail and commercial hub and a strategic metropolitan centre identified by the State Government to redevelop. We are transforming the city centre, revitalising the gateway to nearby tourist regions and delivering economic, social and environmental benefits.

New high-quality transit links

World class health facilities

$1.2b injected into the local economy

Learning and creative industries hub

Rich cultural heritage

Throughout the 20th century, the iconic Midland Railway Workshops were a dominant economic force and the centre of work and community life in Midland. We are working to conserve and repurpose The Workshops so they can again be a driver of the local economy and community. We are embracing Midland’s past to create a better future.
