The Hub brings together local residents, retailers and community groups who want to maintain the unique identity of Mount Hawthorn and make it a welcoming place to live, work and play.

We encourage and promote the diversity, lifestyle and retail environment in Mount Hawthorn by building a unique sense of identity through the organisation of local events, creative projects and streetscape improvements.

Before the Hub grew into what it is today, it was originally formed by members of the Mt Hawthorn local business community.  Originally called the “Mt Hawthorn Business Group Inc”,  the aim of the group was to highlight the thriving local retail district along Scarborough Beach Road and to remind the community to think local and shop local through street activations, busking and evening events such as “Whats Up Wednesday” and the original “Up Late” which later formed into our annual celebration of all things Mt Hawthorn, the Streets & Lanes Festival.
