Sydney Harbour proves the
Destination with exclusive
marina access for boaters
Boaters are benefiting from complimentary access to some
of Sydney Harbour’s most exclusive private marina facilities as
part of the expanding Sydney Harbour Destinations Plan, now
in its third year.
Nineteen commercial marinas have opened doors to the
boating public since the NSW Government launched the Plan
in 2013 to improve access for boaters through casual, short term
berthing or mooring and access to key facilities.
“Our iconic harbour is the jewel in Sydney’s crown and some
of Sydney’s finest marinas offer boaters free access all year
around to allow them to hop off, take a break, or grab something
to eat or drink,” Roads and Maritime Services Maritime Director
Angus Mitchell said.
“Nineteen popular locations are offering this service for
anyone having a day out on the water in return for small lease
concessions to cover costs.
“Boaters just need to look out for bright green ‘Boating
Destination Marina’ banners on display at prominent locations at
participating marinas. Blue banners marked ‘Destination Berth’
show boaters where to tie boats up.
Handy new maps are now available highlighting the location,
GPS coordinates and contact details of marinas and available
facilities including wifi, water and fuel, slipway and marine
services, public toilets, food, recreational areas, water wash
down, power and pump out area.
“ This is about making a great boating experience on the
harbour even better and we welcome boaters to get out and
safely explore the harbour as these facilities are for everyone,”
Mr Mitchell said.
An interactive map of participating marinas is available at

on Water’, will be seen on Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth
community TV stations from Sunday, 29 November, with
Sydney and Adelaide in the pipeline according to long-time
Sailing TV portal, www.boatson.tv
This is the first time that the sport of sailing has had a
dedicated, sailing only, weekly news show on commercial TV,
and it will be seen multiple times a week.
The show will include a segment for suppliers of products
and services to the sailing industry to showcase their
companies, and advertisers can book spots to reach this new
exclusive yachting audience.
In December, ‘ World on Water’ will feature the Extreme
Sailing Series, SOLAS Big Boat Challenge and the Rolex
Sydney Hobart on Sydney Harbour, along with the ISAF Sailing
World Cup in Melbourne. In January it will include the 500
boat Optimist Australian Championship on Botany Bay and
the Festival of Sails in Geelong.
“For too long commercial TV has had football, cars, fishing
and other sports, but not sailing,” Geoff Waller, owner of Boats
on TV, said. “Now this has changed, and as we are a small
operation, we are looking for sponsorship and advertising
support. Longer reports of major events are being planned
and these will be offered for sponsorship and airing on our
