The Macassar Pavilion is set to be demolished.
It is believed that in the late ’80s the Macassar community rejoiced at the announcement of a newly established beacon of hope and prosperity. And for the first decade following its establishment, the Macassar Pavilion was said to be just that.
It was the place one would want to visit at every opportunity – a tranquil escape with picturesque views and a magnificent entertainment hub.
Fast-forward to today, decades later, and there is no longer evidence of the community gem and character-rich drawcard it once was, something that remains to be seen. It is merely the sad sight of dilapidation and desolation.
Now, in the year that the Macassar community is said to celebrate 50 years of its heritage-rich existence, the jovial occasion coincides with an anticipated loss – the demolition of the Macassar Pavilion.
