Port Hedland’s ‘West End’ is an historical precinct located at the seaside end of this Pilbara community, and is home to the Courthouse Gallery and Visitor Centre, both managed by FORM. As part of our community development in the region, FORM has upgraded the West End via landscaping, climate friendly shading, and street-scaping, as well as implementing activation programs to foster a vibrant regional centre. Projects have also included the renovation of the historically significant Banger’s Bungalow and the restoration of the Silver Star – an Art Deco train carriage that belonged to a famous Chicago fleet and operated in the Pilbara during the 1930s – relocating the vehicle to the West End and transforming it into a cafe and restaurant.
