Mac (mini) as airplay 2 multi-room endpoint/receiver

Currently using mac mini 2014 as a living room home theatre computer using both OSX (Mojave) and Windows 10 (bootcamp) platforms. I have successfully set up the mac mini as a source for multi-room audio streaming via iTunes/airplay 2, but cannot find a way to make it function as a receiver/endpoint and use my iPad mini 4 as a source elsewhere in the house So when I open the control centre on my iPad, I see all the airplay 2 receivers/speakers with the exception of the mac mini.
One clumsy workaround is to use the iTunes remote app on the iPad, but that's only marginally better than useless from my perspective. Is there anyway to set up the mac mini as an airplay 2 receiver that's visible to iOS devices?
