We are currently developing the design for a major upgrade to recreation facilities at Anna Bay’s Robinson Reserve, part of the Birubi Point Aboriginal Place.The project includes environmental and heritage approvals, detailed designs and the construction of a new car park and skate park.

This project is funded by the NSW Government's Stronger Country Communities Fund and Port Stephens Council.

Project background

The upgrade at Robinson Reserve will create attractive and multi-purpose facilities that the community can enjoy and keeps with the cultural significance of the site.

Stage 1 will see Council deliver a new car park, public toilet, family playground and skate park within Robinson Reserve. a viewing platform on Birubi Headland and beach amenities in Ocean Avenue Reserve.

Concept design

Following community consultation in 2018, the concept design for the facility upgrades has been finalised. Thank you to all those people who have helped us to develop to this exciting concept stage so far. The concept design responds to feedback received during consultation and delivers on the objectives and vision of the Birubi Point Aboriginal Place Master Plan.

Current status

The concept will be used to inform the final design which will take into consideration environmental management requirements, engineering constraints and budget. We are currently seeking a suitable contractor to deliver the final components of the project. This will be supported by specialist services to design and deliver the skate park. Documentation to obtain environmental approvals are also underway to ensure the project protects the natural beauty of Anna Bay.


Works will commence in 2019 once all necessary designs have been finalised and environmental approvals have been issued.
