Stage one improvements are now complete and include the games room, three-holiday cabins - Blue Tongue, Kookaburra and Goanna, and landscaping works.

These 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.

They will also ensure the restored cabins are WHS compliant and meet bush fire standards. 

Timeline

Completed December 2020.    

Background 

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.

Approvals 

Recently completed works - DA2017/0281 (lodged 07/07/2017 with approval granted 16/02/2018) for the first stage (three cabins, the games room and landscaping). 

Approval has been granted for DA2019/0712 for works on the remaining six cabins expected to commence early 2022.

Funding 

Funding for this project was provided by the NSW Government from the Stronger Communities Fund to the value of $2.68 million. 

The second round of renovations is possible due to a $1.5 million grant from the NSW Government.
