Elizabeth Bay Marina

The NSW Government is proposing to upgrade the Elizabeth Bay Marina to improve its functionality, amenity and safety for water users and the local community. The existing Marina structure is deteriorating and no longer meets current engineering and maritime safety standards and needs to be upgraded.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime sought feedback on the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for the refined design. Community Feedback on the REF closed on 31 March 2017.

We are currently collating the feedback and will provide a response to the issues raised in a submissions report. We will notify the community and other stakeholders when the report is available.

All feedback is being considered as part of the REF approval process for the project.

Project background

Elizabeth Bay Marina is located at the end of Ithaca Road, Elizabeth Bay, near Beare Park. The marina has existed for over 100 years and is a popular place for boaters, kayakers, residents and tourists visiting the area.

Over time the timber elements have deteriorated and Roads and Maritime is now proposing to upgrade the marina to improve safety and amenity for water users and the local community.

The marina upgrade will provide:

  • Improved marina facilities for the boating community
  • More reliable operations aimed at preventing damage to boats and the marina due to flooding at high tides
  • Improved facilities, better security, and safer water access for kayaks, paddleboards and other small vessels
  • Improved café facilities located at the end of the marina
  • Improved access to the marina, including disabled access
  • A boating destination marina to give boaters access to facilities and amenities, and to improve their Sydney Harbour boating experience.

Community engagement

Roads and Maritime will continue to engage with the community and other stakeholders to provide an update on the project and to seek feedback on the project as it progresses. This input is considered and accordingly incorporated into the planning and design stages along with environmental, constructability, budgetary and other social constraints.
