Western Downs Regional Council is partnering with the Australian Government under its Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) to deliver a major redevelopment of the MyALL107 Cultural Precinct in Dalby.

The revitalisation will transform the current building into an iconic destination for all of the Western Downs, which will reinvigorate and modernise the facility to boost the region's cultural offerings.

It will deliver a vibrant and inviting cultural hub which is highly visible, attracting visitors to stay longer and enticing residents to engage in the activities and events available.

The project has commenced early construction in late 2020 and will take approximately two years to complete.

Key Features:

  • New landscaped area for public events
  • Upgraded cinema
  • Upgraded library
  • Well-appointed facilities to cater for events, receptions, premieres and other functions
  • Upgraded multi-purpose theatre space - adaptable to cinema, performing arts, lectures etc
  • State-of-the-art audio visual, sound and lighting equipment throughout
  • Upgraded dressing rooms and backstage area including lift for equitable access
  • Outdoor areas, including a large deck, for live entertainment, story-telling, alfresco dining and other gatherings
  • Enhanced entry points and 'drop off' facility
  • New landscaping and gardens
  • Improved car park, lighting and security

Facility Arrangements 

  • The Dalby Library will be temporarily relocated to 69 Drayton Street (Findex Building). The transition will take place from 15 March to 12 April.
