Barrenjoey Headland amenities

The National Parks and Wildlife Service is improving visitor amenities at Barrenjoey Headland.

View from Barrenjoey Lighthouse TrackThe 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 developed plans to provide permanent toilets and a water refill station at Barrenjoey. Designed by Aileen Sage Architects, these new amenities have considered heritage constraints, visual impacts, environmental impact, visitor and access requirements, construction constraints and services provision.

We will also undertake important maintenance works to the Barrenjoey access trail as part of these works to improve public access and safety.

Construction commenced on 8 July 2024 and is expected to be complete in November 2024 (pending weather or other adverse conditions).

This project is being delivered as part of the largest visitor infrastructure program in national park history.
