Whitsunday Regional Council is rebuilding the Proserpine Entertainment Centre and looking forward to reopening this important community facility next 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 $18.725 million.


Latest News

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 design includes a new multi-purpose auditorium and stage, retractable tiered seating, kitchen, café, bar, ticketing area, toilets and dressing rooms.

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 - http://www.whitsunday.qld.gov.au/216/Opening-hours-and-locations


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.
