Our Projects








Keeping Doug Jennings Park beautiful

The completion of a $2 million facelift at Doug Jennings Park, The Spit.

A more efficient and effective maintenance vessel, the ‘Currigee’

The Seaway Emergency Access Stairs have been welcomed by divers and snorkelers who have for many years accessed the water by climbing down the rock wall. The stairs mean safer entry and exit of the water and better emergency access to the Seaway in the case of a person needing to be evacuated.

A visit to our completed boardwalk and canoe launch adjacent to David Fleay Wildlife Park is well worth it.
