The Australian Government is conducting an independent review of the Harbour Trust and its legislative, financial and governance arrangements. With the Harbour Trust now approaching 20 years old, the review is an opportunity to take stock and ensure that arrangements are fit for the future.

The Sydney Harbour Federation Trust (the Harbour Trust) was established in 2001. Its role is to rehabilitate prominent former Defence sites on Sydney Harbour and open them for public access.

The sites managed by the Harbour Trust are Cockatoo Island, North Head Sanctuary in Manly, Headland Park in Mosman, Sub Base Platypus in Neutral Bay, Woolwich Dock and Parklands, the former Marine Biological Station at Watsons Bay, and Macquarie Lightstation in Vaucluse. These sites are unique places, each possessing extraordinary natural beauty, rich heritage values and stories which need to be protected and preserved for future generations.

As part of the review the Australian Government wants to work with the community to identify and address the challenges, constraints and opportunities facing the Trust.

A public forum will be held at:

Pullman Sydney Hyde Park Hotel

February 18, 2020

6pm to 8pm.

For further information and to register for attendance, head to Australian Government Department of the Environment and Energy opens in a new windowwebsite.
