Tennis Wharf Pontoon

Installation of the new pontoon and demolition of the deteriorated section of the finger wharf will now commence on 4 September.

We are now advised by the contractor it could be up to four days before the work is completed, during which time boat owners will need to make other arrangements for tie up.

Council now tells us that we will not be able to park you boat in the shallow near the sea wall because construction of the sea wall is not likely to be completed by then and there will  be a boom across the bay.
  • Tie up at Commuter Wharf at Church Point
  • Make a temporary arrangement with a private jetty owner
  • Use the ferry for commuting
Any offers from private jetty owners for that short period would be greatly appreciated.
