The Revitalising Central Dandenong initiative is rejuvenating Dandenong’s city centre and re-establishing Dandenong as the capital of Melbourne’s growing south east region.

The $290 million revitalisation project was announced by the Victorian Government in 2006 and is creating a fresh new future for central Dandenong.

Several key projects are now complete or underway and the initiative is enhancing Dandenong’s appeal as a place to live, work and visit through new residential, commercial and community projects.

The Revitalising Central Dandenong initiative is being delivered by Places Victoria in partnership with the City of Greater Dandenong, government agencies and the private sector.
