A new kind of community leadership

What is Mambourin?

Mambourin is a new residential and mixed-use development in Melbourne’s west, one of Australia’s most rapidly expanding growth areas.

The development is delivered by Frasers Property Australia, who will collaborate with CoDesign Studio, the Foundation for Young Australians and Neighbourlytics to engage future residents to create a healthy, safe and connected place for people to thrive.

About the Resilient Communities project

Over the next three years, we are working in partnership with the extended Frasers Property team to test the proposed approach for accelerating community development in greenfield sites. We will work with emerging and future communities at Mambourin to ensure that community engagement methods evolve according to the local context and changing needs of the communities there.

We’re aiming to foster:

  • multicultural and intergenerational community leadership at Mambourin
  • self-reliance and mutual support among residents.

We will share our own lessons locally, nationally and internationally.
