Local contractor GC Civil Pty Ltd has been awarded the contract to construct Stage 1 of this project.


The latest

The Bherwerre Wetlands Stage 1 is complete and open to public with the boardwalks remaining accessible after large rain events. A formalised car park at the end of The Park Drive includes 6 spaces and one accessible car space. The installation of artworks by local artist Vanessa Barbay and interpretive signs (photos by Chris Grounds) along the walk makes the project more special.

About the project

The boardwalks at Bherwerre Wetland, Sanctuary Point, is one of seven Sustainable Tourism Infrastructure Projects to improve infrastructure around some of the City’s most popular tourist destinations. Council successfully obtained grant funding of $5.3 Million under the NSW Government’s Restart NSW Infrastructure Grant for the sustainable tourism infrastructure projects.

The funding has allowed for Stage 1 works only, which is on the northern side of the canal.

Local contractor GC Civil Pty Ltd are undertaking the construction of the Bherwerre Wetland Boardwalk Stage 1. The current contract will see the construction of an accessible carpark at the end of Park Drive, an accessible boardwalk (393m long x 2m wide) to a viewing platform at the junction of the canal and Cockrow Creek and a boardwalk from Larmer Avenue (420m long x 1.2m wide) to the proposed carpark. Signage and seating will also be included.

Further expansions of the boardwalk are planned for the southern side of the canal, which includes a bridge crossing, and will be implemented as budget becomes available.

The site will be closed during construction – refer to the Boardwalk Construction Stage 1. It is anticipated the boardwalks will be opened by the end of 2023.
