Project information

The Port of Eden is an active working port which supports a variety of recreational, commercial, and port vessel operations on the New South Wales far south coast. On occasion, the port is exposed to significant wind and wave conditions which can affect maritime safety in the port and increase the risk of damage to vessels that are moored in Snug Cove or berthed on either the Mooring Jetty or Multi-Purpose Jetty.

The aim of the Eden Safe Harbour Project is to provide a safer harbour for local and visiting vessels and improve the protection of existing maritime infrastructure within Snug Cove, Eden.

Providing a safer harbour will enhance Eden’s reputation as a safe boating destination which is anticipated to stimulate local investment in the maritime and tourism sectors.

Project location

Eden Safe Harbour aerial plan

A 366-metre-long fixed panel wave attenuator (also called a ‘wave wall’ or ‘wave screen’) will be constructed towards the inlet of the cove, in-between the two mooring jetties.

The design of the wave attenuator was developed based on stakeholder consultation, site-specific weather and geotechnical conditions along with specialist engineering studies and expert advice.
