Building Mandalong’s Future

Mandalong is a small rural community. Most of the properties in the area are between 10 and 50 hectares, some in traditional small farming blocks but many in environmentally protected areas. There was a population of just 433 people at the 2021 census.

Typical of rural locations, families had lived in the valley for many years and there was a strong sense of community and appreciation of the local environment.

In recent years Centennial Coal purchased more than 50 properties in the Mandalong Valley. This represented more than 30% of the landholders.

During this time the social profile of the community radically changed as long-term owner residents were replaced with tenants. The impact has been significant. This unavoidable sequence of events gradually fractured and weakened the community engagement.

In response to these circumstances the Mandalong Community Association set about an intense period of community-building activities. Central to these activities has been an ongoing ambition to procure a meeting facility to further enable the MCA to draw together and nourish the rebuilding of the community.

The focus is now firmly on raising the funds necessary to establish a community hub utilising the old Mandalong Fire Shed site once the fire brigade has been rehoused in a purpose-built fire station nearer the M1. The community hub will provide a space in which the community can carry out a range of activities including occasional markets, movie nights, barbeques and social events.

The facility will be available to Mandalong and local residents who are interested in running sessions such as yoga, meditation or art classes – we are open to all suggestions. The development of a community facility in Mandalong will be a great boost to strengthen the sense of local community in Mandalong and beyond.

Centennial Coal is now selling properties it no longer has an interest in and the community is pleased to be welcoming new families into the area, many of them with young children. The future looks bright for Mandalong.
