Shire of Coolgardie Development and Operation of Worker Accommodation Village

Project Objective

The Shire of Coolgardie is building a worker accommodation village which will include a 200-room facility on Bluebush Road in Kambalda West as well as a dry mess, recreation room, meeting room and a small gym. The new accommodation will provide rooms for employees working on local mine sites to meet the growing needs of the mining industry. The site will be landscaped as part of the project. 


  • Developing another income-generating asset
  • Increasing its portion of own source income
  • Improving its financial ratios
  • Increasing the supply of much needed worker accommodation
  • Providing greater opportunity to integrate village occupants into community life and the local economy
  • Enable local economic growth underpinned by mining activity


  • Works will commence from April 2022 and progress until November 2022. This includes earthworks, freight, and ancillary camp works such as footpaths, landscaping and recreational areas.


  • Road maintenance will be conducted on Casuarina Road
  • Bluebush & Casuarina roads will be used for heavy vehicle access to the site.
  • Safety considerations will be put in place
  • Soft landscaping and screening along with garrison fencing will be visible
