Stage one boating facilities upgrade completed

THE Booderee National Park’s brand new wharf facility at Murray’s Beach on the NSW south coast was officially opened on Saturday, November 9.

Nearly $750,000 has been invested in the design and construction of the wharf, which will provide safer and improved access to the waters off Booderee and Jervis Bay.


“It’s great news for boaters that the new ramp is open in time for the busy summer season,” park manager Scott Suridge said.

“Recreational fishers and divers will now have easier and safer access to Booderee waters. The new wharf offers increased tie-up space, to accommodate more boats than before.

“Because the access ramp has been constructed along the break wall, we’ve also greatly reduced the risk of boats making contact with the western side of the break wall in bad weather, particularly when there are westerly winds.

“We thank everyone for their patience during the construction.”


The wharf was constructed by NSW-based specialists Landmark Marinas Pty Ltd trading as Clement Marine Services, who contended with some adverse weather conditions and encountered some extra hard rock in the drilling and piling phase of the project.

The park will complete stage two of the project, the disabled-access boardwalk from the car park to the break wall, in the low-visitation season from May to June next year. This will enhance and complete the project.
