Council is committed to restoring and upgrading Currawong so that it remains a valued tourist, heritage and recreational asset, for guests and day-trippers.
Improvements are planned for the games room, holiday cabins, pathway and landscaping. Improvement will provide more family-friendly facilities suited to groups of various sizes, safer access to the cottages and a better experience for visitors using the games room and cottages. Improvements will also ensure the restored cabins are WHS compliant and meet bush fire standards.
Works are due to start February 2020.
Currawong State Park is home to Currawong Beach Cottages, located on the Western Foreshores of Pittwater. Council acquired the site in 2011.
The cottages are listed on the State Heritage Register and were constructed between 1949 and 1953 and remain in original working condition today.
Council has worked with the Currawong State Park Advisory Committee to plan this restoration. All plans have been endorsed by the Office of Environment and Heritage and have been completed in full alignment with the Conservation Management Plan for the site.
Approval has been granted for DA2017/0281 (lodged 07/07/2017 with approval granted 16/02/2018) for the first stage – this includes updating three cabins, the games room and landscaping.
Approval has been granted for DA2019/0712 for works on the remaining six cabins.
Availability during 2020
While works are underway, public access will be limited to the wharf, Midholme and communal recreation areas along the foreshore.
The cottages will not be available during these works. Current Midholme and Caretaker's bookings on weekends still stand during the works.
Funding for this project was provided by the NSW Government from the Stronger Communities Fund to the value of $2.68 million.
