Public moorings at Coogee Beach

The City will be installing three public moorings at Coogee Beach between the Eco Shark Barrier, Omeo Shipwreck and Coogee Maritime Trail for visitors on boats to enjoy the surrounding attractions while limiting seabed disturbance from anchors (see map below titled 'Public Moorings near Omeo wreck 2022). The installation will begin in May 2022, with the moorings being ready to use from October 2022. 

The three moorings will cater for vessels up to 25 metres in length and have signage to show the maximum vessel length and duration of stay. Recreational boat users as well as dive clubs could use the moorings.

Why is the City installing the moorings?

The City of Cockburn, residents and stakeholders have recognised the growing number of visitors to Coogee Beach to swim, snorkel and dive.

More and more vessels are coming into Coogee Beach, anchoring close to the Omeo shipwreck, and entering the non-motorised waters area.

The moorings provide a secure location for vessels away from swimmers, divers and users of the local attractions.

A grant application was submitted and approved by the Department of Transport (DoT) as part of the Recreational Boating Facilities Scheme (RBFS) to fund 75% of the $30,000 project.

When will the installation of the moorings occur?

The installation on the seabed will occur mid-2022, with the moorings attached in October 2022, ready for summer. 

It is proposed that the public moorings would only be deployed during the popular boating months from October through to April, similar to the City’s swimming pontoons.

The location of the moorings is within DoT waters, so for any vessel non-compliance, please complete the DoT Non-Compliance Report. The moorings will be managed and maintained by the City of Cockburn.
