Council will provide a new public amenities building beside Woolooware Bay Shared Pathway, near Shorebird Reserve Taren Point.

Corner of Smith Street and Alexander Road, Taren Point

Project timeline

Project start:  February 2023

Expected completion: August 2023

Reason for works

Council has undertken a program of works to transform the foreshore of Woolooware Bay from a degraded industrial land site into a wonderful foreshore reserve for public recreation purposes.  This transformation involves the establishment of a shared pedestrian walkway and cycleway while at the same time restoring the foreshore along the route back to its natural state.

The Woolooware Bay Shared Pathway is now a very popular destination for all ages and it currently does not have a public toilet facility nearby.  There has been a number of requests from the public for such a facility to be provided at this location.  The addition of a public amenity facility which is inclusive, will improve the overall amenity and experience for people enjoying the outdoors and the natural beauty of this foreshore area.

Your consultation feedback  to Council can be viewed here.

Scope of works

The new amenities will provide four toilets (male, female, unisex and accessible/family), a covered open washbasin area, water bubbler and bike racks.  The scope of works involves:

  • Site establishment
  • Connections for services such as water, electricity and sewer.
  • Building construction works.
  • Minor Landscape works.

Project schedule

Site Establishment – February 2023

Practical Completion – August 2023

Public impacts during construction

Public access to the shared pathway and most areas of Shorebird Reserve will remain open during the works.

The building site will be fenced and closed to the public during construction.

There may be some inconvenience to parking and vehicle access as materials are delivered to the site.

We appreciate your patience during this important work.
