Rocks Ferry Revetment Wall Construction

Rocks Ferry Reserve_landscape.jpg

Rocks Ferry Reserve is a popular public recreation area located on the Hastings River, Wauchope and  is an ideal venue for recreational boating and motorised water sports, annual rowing regattas and club meetings. The reserve has picnic tables, a boat ramp, car parking, play equipment, barbeques, a shared footpath/ cycleway and a shingle beach used for water skiing and water sport access to the river.

The Rocks Ferry Reserve Rock Revetment Project forms part of Council’s broader Community Strategic Plan.

One of the key objectives of this program is to address a highly eroded section of riverbank adjacent to the Rocks Ferry Reserve footpath near Princess Avenue.

Works will include 150m of rock wall construction and a minor section of shared path reinstatement. This work will help protect the embankment from future flood events.

The second stage of work is currently on hold pending environmental approvals. Works will be scheduled to commence once approvals have been received. The time frame can typically take 6 to 12 months. Further updates will be provided in due course.

  • Rocks Ferry Reserve Revetment Wall - Stage 1 Complete

    25 September 2018

    Installation of rock on the 150m section of embankment adjacent to Princess Avenue and restoration of park areas has progressed ahead of schedule, with the nearby pedestrian path expected to re-open on Friday 28 September. 

    Further restoration work will now move onto the section of embankment between Pebble Beach and the boat ramp.

    This additional work will further reinforce the existing wall where required and is expected to commence in around a month’s time subject to material and contractor availability.

    The pedestrian path adjacent to the rock wall at this section will remain open during the works, however access to the river bank will be restricted, with barrier fencing in place around the work site to ensure public safety.

    Stage 2 of the rock wall restoration works are expected to take 2 weeks to complete.
