Audley Boatshed open for offers

May 2021

The famous Audley Boatshed is being floated for offers as works to restore and enhance the historic building near completion.

The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is seeking expressions of interest (EOI) for the lease and operation of the boatshed, located in the popular Audley Precinct of Royal National Park.

Experienced operators are invited to provide proposals for the use of the boatshed and delivery of visitor services, including paddle craft hire.

NPWS is consolidating the boat storage and rental area at the northern end of the building and adapting the southern end to provide two new sheltered areas, suitable for picnics and functions.

Other works to enhance the boatshed include:

  • upgraded lighting, power and drainage
  • new roofing and
  • two new uncovered decks over the slipway.

This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in operating a business in a well-established historic location which can receive thousands of visitors on weekends.

The project to restore and enhance the boatshed forms part of a broader program to upgrade visitor facilities and infrastructure within Audley Precinct.

For further information and to register your interest in the EOI opportunity, please visit the NSW eTendering webpage (the EOI closes on 28 June 2021).
