Project information


The Bank Street marina and wharf facilities will be built to provide an alternative site for the displaced Blackwattle Bay Marina which was moved from Pyrmont Bridge Road, Glebe to accommodate the development of the new Sydney Fish Market.

The NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment held a public consultation session about the project in 2017. For details of the project history, as well as the consultation, visit the Major Projects webiste.

NSW Maritime is now responsible for the delivery of the Bank Street Marina project.
