Lots of creative endeavours took place at Warracknabeal Court House late 2019, as part of the reactivation project in partnership with Monash University (MADA) and the Yarriambiack Shire.


The goal of the reactivation projec t is to initiate a cultural precinct for Warracknabeal and the surrounding region. It aims to increase community participation and engagement in civic activity, create new economic opportunities and stimulate cultural diversity through the various ventures sited at the court house.


The focus for Stage 1 works will be accessibility and compliance with occupancy requirements. It will incorporate additions to the existing building in the form of an access ramp and accessible toilet, as well as reconfiguing the interior spaces in order to create:

>  a working studio area

>  flexible community space

>  short-term accommodation for artists and visitors

>  a study and kitchenette





The Royal Mint Car Park at 280 William Street will enter a new phase of operation in early February 2020.


After more than 21 years of operation with attendants, the car park will be automated as of 5:30pm Monday 03 February 2020.


Thank you to all who park with us, especially our long-term customers.


Without your patronage, Working Heritage would not be able to carry out the restoration and reactivation projects at the 16 heritage sites we mange, including the former Royal Mint, where the car park is located. 










As of Tuesday 17 March 2020, Working Heritage staff will be working remotely and at the office on a rotation system. We are following government guidelines in relation to COVID-19.


Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the global pandemic, whether it be directly or indirectly.
