Whitsunday Regional Council recently completed the demolition of the damaged Proserpine Entertainment Centre at the end of April 2020.
Construction on the new building will begin from Tuesday 15 September and is expected to be completed by the end of August 2021, weather permitting.
Nearby residents and businesses may notice an increase in noise and dust from the construction site and an increase in traffic in the area. Council officers will be in regular contact with nearby residents and businesses to keep them informed throughout the works. We thank the community for their patience and understanding and apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by the works.
The building was extensively damaged during Cyclone Debbie and the rebuild is proudly funded by the Australian Government through the Community Development Grants and Queensland Reconstruction Authority, with a current funding total of $18.725 million.
The design includes a new multi-purpose auditorium and stage, retractable tiered seating, kitchen, café, bar, ticketing area, toilets and dressing rooms.

A portable public toilet will be installed on the grass at the front of the Proserpine Library, and will be accessible for all residents during the demolition and construction works. The Accessible toilet will contain a parent changing table and will be open during library hours.
Please note - The Proserpine Library remains open in its current site near the Proserpine Entertainment Centre.
