In 2020, we completed the upgrade of three cottages (Blue Tongue, Kookaburra and Goanna), the games rooms, and improved access and signage. 

We are now preparing for the next stage of works at Currawong State Park (DA2019/0712).

Works will include the full restoration to four cottages including modern amenities along with remedial works for two additional cottages currently in their original condition.

These improvements will provide more family-friendly facilities suited to groups of various sizes, safer access to the cottages, and an improved visitor experience.

All works will be WHS compliant and meet bush fire standards. 

Currawong will be largely closed during construction with some availability for guests over weekends only. Contact Currawong for bookings info.


Works commencing May with completion expected prior to Christmas holiday period 2022.


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.


  • DA2017/0281 approved for three cabins, the games room and landscaping. 
  • DA2019/0712 approved for works on the remaining six cabins.

Project Update

  • The stage 2 works were completed in December 2022 in time for guests to use the facilities over the Christmas holiday period. A 12 month defects liability period is scheduled to close in December 2023.


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 was possible thanks to a $1.66 million in funding from the NSW Government including $148,815 from NSW Heritage under the Caring for State Heritage Fund for restoration works to highly listed cabin ‘Platypus’.
