Leeuwin Barracks

Previous Update

The Leeuwin Barracks Divestment Project has included active engagement with the community over the past several years with the most recent activity being a planned Open Day in early 2020. However, this engagement process was postponed in accordance with State and Territory health guidance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Defence’s accommodation requirements in Perth and Fremantle have changed over the past 24 months as a result of forecast new Royal Australian Navy capabilities and workforce growth. As such, Defence is temporarily suspending the disposal of Leeuwin Barracks to allow for a study of the long-term Defence estate requirements in the Perth and Fremantle region. Defence is planning to have this study completed by the first quarter of 2022.

Pending the findings of this study into the long-term estate requirements, Defence will inform the community about the outcome for the future use of Leeuwin Barracks. Community stakeholder consultation will likely resume on the planning of the site upon the completion of the study and once the future of Leeuwin Barracks is known.
