 Save Yarra Bay | 20 December

  Save Yarra Bay  Save Yarra Bay

The Save the Bay Coalition explains to the Prince Henry Community their grounds for opposition to a cruise ship terminal at Yarra Bay.

Thousands of residents, many businesses, our two local Councils (Randwick and Bayside), as well as other stakeholders are united in opposition to the New South Wales government's evaluation of Yarra Bay as a location for a mega cruise ship terminal. We are joined by our Federal and State Members of Parliament (Matt Thistlethwaite and Michael Daley) and the La Perouse Aboriginal Land Council, the traditional custodians of the land.

Yarra Bay is in a direct line to the ocean and huge swells can roll into the bay at any time of the year. The existing breakwater that shelters ships at Port Botany is west of Yarra Bay and would not protect the proposed terminal. A terminal in Yarra Bay would require massive investment in new breakwaters and other engineering works to protect gigantic berthed vessels from the effects of waves and wind. Read more...

The Save the Bay Coalition is appealing to local residents to support its important campaign opposing this unrealistic proposal from the NSW Government. Everyone understands the need to find a solution to cruise industry port constraints in NSW. However, a terminal in Yarra Bay or at Molineaux Point is not the answer.
