Great cities provide activity, culture and convenience - day and night. Our draft Evening, Culture and Entertainment Strategy aims to ensure public spaces in Waverley are safe and vibrant in the day and into the evening.
You may have attended one of our demonstration projects - which are running from 13-23 September. A full list of events is available at waverley.nsw.gov.au/afterdark
We want to hear your thoughts on our plan to make Bondi Junction a fun, family-friendly, vibrant place after dark.
A key aspiration of the Bondi Junction community is for more activity and things to do in the evening. In particular, there is a demand for activities that attract families and young children, moving away from the traditional focus on alcohol-based evening culture and entertainment options. Activating a night economy is a crucial component of ensuring Bondi Junction is a safe, productive and well-loved place.
You highlighted that Spring Street, Oxford Street, Bronte Road and Waverley Mall were areas that you think would benefit from further evening activation. Oxford Street Mall, the heart of Bondi Junction, drops significantly in activity after 6pm once the majority of shops and businesses close.
We want to work with residents, traders, creative industries and other partners to deliver our Heartbeat of the East vision for Bondi Junction - ensuring it is an attractive evening destination for everyone.
