THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

Ocean Reef breakwaters complete

AUSTRALIA: Construction is nearly complete on the first stage of the Ocean Reef Marina development in Joondalup, Perth, Western Australia (WA). Both of the new breakwaters are now built at full height and, by mid-August, the northern breakwater had reached its final height.

The next phase of the project includes dredging the marina basin, and landside clearance to provide fill for land reclamation and future earth works. Local contractors WA Limestone and Italia Stone Group, who also built the breakwaters, are now involved in this second step, which is expected to finish early to mid-2023.
When the marina is complete, it will have 550 berths, dry stack for 200 boats, boat ramps and trailer parking. More than 1,000 residential homes are planned in a mix of housing types, along with retail and commercial space and over 5ha (12.4 acres) of community space.
Ocean Reef Marina is a McGowan Labour Government project being delivered by DevelopmentWA in collaboration with the City of Joondalup. Lands Minister, John Carey, says: “The new Ocean Reef Marina is a landmark project for our State and has reached yet another significant milestone with the commencement of this next phase of works, further laying the groundwork required to create an iconic coastal destination for Perth.”
“Comprehensive and careful planning has taken place to ensure the local environment and fauna are protected while the works are undertaken.”
Joondalup MLA, Emily Hamilton, describes the project as a “terrific step forward” for the city. “Not only will this development become a tourism hotspot with the creation of a world-class marina and WA’s first coastal pool, it will create thousands of new jobs that will be a major injection into the local economy.”
