Ocean Reef Marina

Is something fishy going on?

You might see some divers and drilling equipment onsite over the next few weeks. But don't worry!  These people are doing geotechnical investigations so we can better understand the condiition of the soil and rocks below the seabed, 

Over the coming months, the same testing will occur over the dry land across the site.

Let's rock the boat

We recently brought together a room of experts - from local and State Government, through to university professors and technology providers - to brainstorm 'smart technology' ideas for Ocean Reef Marina. 

Ideas were centred around 12 different 'personas', representing the types of people who will use the marina, including:

  • Boating and fishing enthusiasts
  • Residents of the marina and surrounding area - school students, families and older residents
  • Future workers in the marina - retail owners and office workers
  • Environmentally-conscious individuals
  • Local government representatives
  • Utility providers
  • Marina managers
  • Visitors to the marina - international tourists and residents of the broader metropolitan area

Check out the video below for a visual recording of the workshop discussion. 

Refined Concept Plan

Ocean Reef Marina is set to become a world-class waterfront precinct providing recreational, tourism, residential and boating facilities for local residents and visitors alike. 

We have refined the Concept Plan based on feedback from the community and to make sure we can deliver a truly world-class marina development. 

The changes to the plan will ensure the marina is:

  • Appropriate for the location;
  • Providing the amenities and features the community wants;
  • Environmentally responsible; and
  • Financially sustainable.
