Waterfront Geelong - Safe Harbour Precinct
Expansion of the Geelong Waterfront Precinct will provide a safe harbour through wave protection, additional marina berths and improved facilities for water-based events and activities.
The precinct is home to the annual Festival of Sails, which attracts more than 3,000 participants and 110,000 visitors, as well as state, national and world championship boating and yachting events. The Festival of Sails generates in excess of $14 million in economic impact for the region each year.
Redevelopment will allow expansion of the festival and help attract other major events to the waterfront.
This Economic Development Pillar Project is an element of the G21 Regional Harbours Priority Project.
