The Barrenjoey Headland is a 34-hectare area located within Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and is a popular destination with approximately 200,000 visitors each year. The lack of public amenities in the headland impacts the visitor experience and has led to environmental and operational issues particularly the prevalence of litter and waste. In 2019, National Parks and Wildlife Service installed transportable toilets as a temporary solution while planning for a permanent amenity was underway.
We have now secured funding to progress the provision of permanent toilets and water refill station at Barrenjoey. Aileen Sage Architects have been engaged to design suitable amenities which considered heritage constraints, visual impacts, environmental impact, visitor and access requirements, construction constraints and services provision.
This project is being delivered as part of the largest visitor infrastructure program in national park history.
