A development application has already been approved for a 273 berth state of the art marina. Harbour dredging is already underway and the first stage of the water based construction is set to start in the second half of 2019. This uniquely protected safe harbour with a north-facing entrance channel will cater to vessels up to 32metres with the ability to accommodate single hull, multi hull and super yacht vessels. The Gateway Burnett Heads will also offer the convenience of 24 hour fuel, complimentary wifi, concierge services, ships chandlery and more.
Already complete is the decommissioning and removal of the aged wet infrastructure that included old piles and pontoons, geotechnical site studies have been undertaken and 60,000m3 of harbour dredging is also now complete with the final stage of dredging expected to be concluded by mid 2019.
In the second half of 2019 we will see construction commence of the first 56 berths, commission of a new fuel pontoon and fuel infrastructure as well as all associated services such as power, water, sewer pump out, marina car parking and renovation of existing buildings to prepare for a marina office and dry dock work shed.
