Frasers Development Manager Ben sharing the vision for future development of the peninsula, and the attendees expressed their appreciation of the recently completed public open space overlooking the historic Omeo Shipwreck. It’s incredible to see how much everyone is enjoying these spaces and actively engaging in their daily lives.

Music in the Park (by Residents for Residents)
Sunday 19th May

About 150 locals turned up to enjoy a Music in the Park event at Coromandel Approach Park. The weather has been absolutely sublime in WA lately and no hint of Winter to ruin a great outdoor event! With a lazy sunset, warm weather, picnics, great music and some skilled face painters it was a wonderful way for the Port Coogee community to relax and connect. This event was organised by the PCCA events team with operational support from the Frasers Community Team and a City of Cockburn small community grant.

Port Coogee Clean Up Day
Sunday 26th May

The Port Coogee Events team rallied 40 plus volunteers for a Sunday morning clean up. Together with a National Volunteers grant, they partnered with the amazing Council Waste Team for equipment and rubbish collection. Together we all tackled beaches, foreshore areas, and four parks. With lots of reporting to Snap, Send Solve for the bigger items. As a token of appreciation, attendees all received branded PCCA reusable shopping bags and enjoyed a gourmet BBQ hotdog!

🍔 Community Spirit: Despite over-catering, they ensured that nothing went to waste. In fact, all the surplus food was donated to local charity AYLA Inc.'s food bank. The positive vibes during National Volunteers Week were contagious!

Thank you to everyone who participated—your efforts make our communities cleaner and brighter! 🌎❤️
