Two Rocks Marina upgrade
The first phase of the Two Rocks Marina upgrade project is now complete.
The first phase of the Two Rocks Marina upgrade project was completed in August 2022.
The upgrade work included;
• removal of 14 abandoned vessels within the facility;
• the installation of the new floating Q Jetty and R Jetty;
• refurbishment of West-Link Jetty;
• removal of the original fuel jetty and other old structures;
• improvements to the breakwater structure;
• the P Jetty pen replacement;
• upgrades to the fire services;
• building demolition (replacement).
The long awaited improvements to ageing infrastructure will better meet the needs of users.
The upgrades align with the long-term Two Rocks Marina Master Plan, completed in December 2019 in close consultation with Two Rocks Marina Redevelopment Reference Group and stakeholder groups.
The Two Rocks Marina upgrade was required to bring the facility up to the standard expected by the community.
The improvements were designed to address ageing infrastructure, improve safety and provide a foundation for future redevelopment opportunities.
DoT took on the management of the facility in 2014 following the expiry of a lease with a private operator.
This latest upgrade follows on from the June 2016 completion of a ramp upgrade and new boat pontoon, which was delivered as a result of consultation with the local community and City of Wanneroo.

A fresh vision
DoT worked with users, local stakeholders, the Department of Planning Lands and Heritage and the City of Wanneroo, mainly through the Two Rocks Marina Reference Group to address concerns with the facility and create a new vision for the future.
“Two Rocks is an Oceanside village; the heart of tourism and maritime activity in the north-west, a centre of excellence for fresh local produce and a place for the whole community, new and existing.”
The vision was translated into a master plan, which aimed to address concerns. It provides a long-term aspiration to redevelop the marina to expand recreational boating infrastructure and incorporate a central tourism hub, improved connections and traffic flow, a new swimming beach, more public spaces and a recreational precinct.
The master plan also contains an activation plan to implement improvements and create new recreational and commercial opportunities within the existing harbour boundary. This medium-term plan refocuses on the community enjoyment of the marina and is a celebration of the marina’s past.
Southern Foreshore Landscaping
The Southern Foreshore Landscaping Project was part of the second phase of upgrade works at the marina and were completed in September 2022.
The landscaping projecy included the construction of new toilet facilities and additional parking for beach goers, as well as improving paths, services, landscaping, seating and shelter in the area.
