Spoilbank Marina

Following an announcement of the 2019 WA State Government to commit funding to the Spoilbank Marina Development Project in Port Hedland, the Town of Port Hedland and Pilbara Development Commission (PDC) have been given the responsibility to oversee the planning, detailed design and delivery of the Spoilbank Marina.

An expert consultant team has been formed to engage with key stakeholders and the community, undertake detailed design work and secure the necessary approvals. As this project transitions from concept to detailed designs, community and stakeholder involvement is critical to ensure the creation of a vibrant waterfront destination and deliver maximum economic and social benefits for the town, region and local community.
