Environmentally Friendly Koolewong Marina

Tuesday, 15 August 2017

Koolewong Marina located on the Central Coast of New South Wales has been accredited as both a Clean Marina Level 3 and a Fish Friendly Marina. The internationally recognised accreditation is administered by the Marina Industries Association and participants are audited by qualified independent auditors.          

Koolewong Marina is a newly developed modern marina located on Brisbane Water 10 minutes’ drive from Gosford. The marina has 50 berths for vessels up to 30 metres with draft to 5.5m. Facilities include pump out, shore power to 63 amps, security, guest amenities and a restaurant.

The President of the Marina Industries Association (MIA) Andrew Chapman CMM presented Les Binken CMM and Symantha Suprain CMM with accreditation for Koolewong Marina at the Marine17 International Conference and Trade Exhibition recently held in Sydney. Andrew Chapman said “MIA congratulates the marina owners and staff on their commitment to protecting and preserving the valuable marine habitat. The development of the marina has paid particular attention to the protection of sea grass and the on-shore landscaping and drainage are of the highest standard.”     

Les Binken said “Clean Marina and Fish Friendly accreditations are important steps in demonstrating Koolewong Marina’s commitment to environmental best practice and to setting a positive example within the local community. Marinas exist because our clients want to experience a healthy marine environment. It is in everyone’s best interest that we keep raising environmental awareness and standards.”
