For over 90 years, Bondi Pavilion has been a central part of life for residents and visitors to Bondi Beach. Having undergone a complete restoration and upgrade, this iconic building will reopen to the public in mid-2022 offering world-class cultural, community and creative facilities and programming.

The opportunity 

Waverley Council is seeking expressions of interest (EOI) from established community radio stations to utilise and promote the new community radio studio developed as part of the Bondi Pavilion restoration project.

Operating as a shared facility through a licensing agreement, the core purpose of this partnership is to activate the radio studio through the creation and broadcast of localised content, community engagement initiatives and facilitated access to the studio. It will also build awareness of the Bondi Pavilion and engage with Council-led programs and activities.

Scheduled to open in late June 2022, the radio studio comprises a professional standard broadcast and producer facility with shared access to two music studios.

It is anticipated that the community radio partner will have an existing audience and offer programming to engage with a diverse range of listeners and interests, including locals and visitors.
