Ocean Reef Marina

It's o-FISH-ial!  Work has begun on Ocean Reef Marina

Work has now begun on this long-awaited project, transforming the area into a world-class recreational, tourism, residential and boating precinct.

The first stage will include ground works to facilitate the construction of marina infrastructure and public amenities. See the project flyer for an outline of the works timeline.

Perth's first coastal pool

As a result of strong feedback from the local community, a coastal pool has been added to the design for the marina. This will be Perth's first coastal pool, and will be available for locals and visitors to swim laps and play some water sports.

The exact design and dimensions of the pool is subject to further detailed design.

Supporting local clubs and emergency services

Premier Mark McGowan has announced an additional $6.5million to help relocate Marine Rescue Whitfords and Ocean Reef Sea Sports Club (ORSSC) to new facilities within the new marina.

Online Information Session

We held an online information session to provide detail on the Ocean Reef Marina project and Improvement Scheme. 

Following approval of the Metropolitan Region Scheme (MRS) amendment and Gazettal of an Improvement Plan late last year, the WA Planning Commission (WAPC) have prepared an Improvement Scheme to facilitate delivery of the long-awaited Ocean Reef Marina. 

An Improvement Scheme is an alternative to traditional planning frameworks and is specifically designed for complex and strategic projects.  It allows planning to be tailored to the challenges and opportunities of a specific site, rather than being restricted by a generic, state-wide framework.

The WAPC public comment period on the Ocean Reef Marina Improvement Scheme closed on 26 June 2020. 

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
