The school holidays this spring will be all the more enjoyable at Port Coogee Marina with a new swimming pontoon and public jetty now available.
The public jetty was installed next to the Maraboo Bridge as an extension of the existing service jetty.
It will provide space for people to moor their boats for up to two hours while they visit Port Coogee.
Funding for the public jetty was provided in May 2018 by the Department of Transport’s Recreational Boating Facilities Scheme (RFBS), with a 25 per cent contribution added by the City of Cockburn. The RBFS grant provided funds up up to $175,000.
The swimming pontoon was funded internally by the city and is located off the northern end of Ngarkal Beach.
Marina manager Samantha Standish said Ngarkal Beach was a popular spot for residents and visitors to enjoy a swim, a stand-up paddle board or a beach side barbecue.
“We are excited to have the addition of a new swimming pontoon in time for summer for our community to enjoy,” Miss Standish said.
“The new RBFS-funded Public Jetty is a fantastic new addition to the Port Coogee Marina and being nearly 50m long, we can now accommodate more visiting boats to the area.
“There is a two-hour time limit on the public jetty for visiting boats to enjoy nearby Ngarkal Beach, the Omeo Wreck, or to grab a coffee at the local cafes and shop at commercial outlets.”
