Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services is pleased to announce the start of operation of the upgraded Elizabeth Bay Marina on 28 March. The marina features include:

  • 13 Berths ranging from 12 to 15 metres
  • kayak and paddle board storage and launching pontoon
  • a destination berth for visiting boats
  • a pump-out facility
  • a cafĂ© with seating for 12 patrons
  • outdoor public seating
  • 47 swing moorings surrounding the marina.

Work for the new marina started in August 2017, when the old structure was demolished, and the construction of the new marina facilities started. Materials removed from the old structures were removed, and where possible recycled or reused off site. The design of the marina has incorporated a number of environmentally friendly features, such as solar panels, and where possible the use of windows for natural light.

Elizabeth Bay Marina operational hours are from 7:30am to 6pm Monday to Sunday.

For any queries please contact the marina manager Sean Tolkin at sean.tolkin@tolkinmarineservices.com.au for more information.

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 as it progresses.
