Port Hedland Spoilbank Marina
The $121.5 million Port Hedland Spoilbank Marina project aims to transform Port Hedland’s waterfront into an attractive and popular destination for locals and visitors. Featuring boat pens and a four-lane boat ramp, the marina will provide boaties with safer access to deep water, a sheltered area to moor their vessels, and ample vehicle and trailer parking.
The marina will be supported by a multi-million-dollar foreshore development, aiming to create a vibrant space for people, young and old, to enjoy the iconic waterfront location. This will include a waterside promenade, grassed areas for picnics and events, amenities block, landscaped gardens and public art.
