REDFERN: If you have happened to walk or drive past the Pemulwuy site lately you will have seen that all the hoarding around the affordable housing has come down. The apartments are nearly complete and work on the townhouse interiors has commenced, with the installation of stylish, top-of-the-line kitchens and bathrooms.

The townhouses have been designed to suit families living in a modern urban environment, including generous-sized courtyards, which allow for an inside-outside lifestyle. Each courtyard has a laundry/toilet for greater convenience for larger families or for visitors to the households.

We are planning to move new tenants into the affordable housing by the end of this year and we encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to apply to live at Pemulwuy through our website –

Please check our eligibility criteria before completing our Expression of Interest form online.

Work on the road, pavements and landscaping around the apartments has started and we cannot wait to see the beautiful designs come to life soon. To all the loyal gym followers – behind the scenes the Elouera Tony Mundine Gym design and fit-out is progressing well.

There will be a soft launch in December and we plan to open the doors early in 2021. Located adjacent to the gym is our wonderful gallery space, which will be opened at the same time as the gym.
