AUG 2022Site investigations

The Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour upgrade project is in the early stages of development.

As the result of recent flooding in the area, we still have some critical site investigations to complete and will finalise these when conditions improve.

Once complete we will publish the Review of Environmental Factors and seek feedback on the concept design from the community. We will also provide further information about any potential impacts during construction.

At this stage, the number of berths that will become available will not be known until construction is complete. We have now closed the waitlist for berths in this harbour until after the project is completed.

Project information

In February 2021, the then Minister for Transport and Roads, the Hon. Andrew Constance, announced $2.8 million of maritime stimulus funding for the upgrade of maritime infrastructure at Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour.

The Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour is a popular boat harbour located on the far north coast of NSW.

Transport for NSW has reviewed relevant investigations, concepts and community feedback from work completed by Crown Lands for the Brunswick Heads Harbour Draft Master Plan, which  has informed the development of the concept plan for this upgrade project.

The current harbour infrastructure needs upgrading that meets current safety and accessibility standards. The project aims to deliver:

  • Increased community access and use of the boat harbour
  • Increased safety for users of the boat harbour facility by upgrading infrastructure to meet relevant modern design standards
  • Improved accessibility for vessel users in the tidal environment
  • Metered water and power services for each berth

Frequently asked questions

  • At this stage the number of berths that will become available is not known until after construction is completed. We have now closed the waitlist until after construction is completed. We will update the website on this process closer to this time.
  • If you have registered for the waitlist previously, this has been recorded by us. You do not need to apply again.
  • Brunswick Heads Harbour is an extremely popular harbour. The harbour is currently also at capacity. At this stage we do not know how many berths will be available after construction.

    Our waitlist has also now been closed; the waitlist exceeds the current harbour number of berths. If you need a berth immediately, we suggest you look at alternative sites as we cannot estimate when a berth will become vacant and available to you on the list.

  • No it does not, this project is to upgrade the on-water berthing infrastructure within the harbour.
