Whitsunday Regional Council is rebuilding the Proserpine Entertainment Centre and looking forward to reopening this important community facility later this year.

The building was extensively damaged during Cyclone Debbie and the rebuild is proudly funded by the Australian Government through the Building Better Regions Fund and Queensland Reconstruction Authority, with a current funding total of $18.8 million.


Latest News

The rebuild of the Proserpine Entertainment Centre is progressing well, with a significant part of the new building structure already completed. This ‘tower’ type structure will incorporate the theatre and stage and brings the building to its full height.

Works have begun on the construction of the back-of-house rooms, changerooms and concessions areas within the new building, with floor slabs being poured in these areas. The entry foyer slab is currently being poured and footings are being installed for the covered vehicle set-down area near the entry.

The project is on track for completion in late 2021, weather permitting.

The design includes a new multi-purpose auditorium and stage, retractable tiered seating with 380 seats, kitchen, café, bar, ticketing area, toilets and dressing rooms. Other features include a garden and street foyer, cinema screen, art installation, loading dock and scenery dock, technical theatre equipment, outdoor performance area and an upgrade of the War Memorial.

Construction Impacts

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.

Public Amenities

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.


The Proserpine Library remains open in its current site near the Proserpine Entertainment Centre, find opening times here on our website.


War Memorial

Soon after 25 April 2020, the marble plaques and military badge were removed and handed over to the Proserpine branch of the RSL. The remaining structure will then be removed as it is located within the footprint of the new PEC facility. A new and upgraded War Memorial is planned to be completed ready for the 2022 ANZAC service as part of this project.
