New Ocean Reef rescue facilities to boost emergency response

  • Works to commence on Marine Rescue Whitfords, Ocean Reef Sea Sports Club and Joondalup City RSL facilities as part of major redevelopment of Ocean Reef Marina
  • New facilities will improve sea rescue capabilities for Perth’s northern corridor
  • Byte Construct announced as preferred proponent for construction
  • Ocean Reef Marina development made possible by $272.3 million Cook Government investment

The next phase of the transformative Ocean Reef Marina development is about to commence, with construction starting on the new headquarters for Marine Rescue Whitfords and facilities for the Ocean Reef Sea Sports Club and Joondalup City RSL.

Western Australian developer Byte Construct has today been named as the preferred contractor for the works, which are set to get underway in the coming weeks.

Marine Rescue Whitfords will be housed in a new two-storey building with space for training, administration and equipment maintenance.

The new facility will feature state-of-the-art amenities to support the crucial operations of Western Australia’s dedicated volunteer rescue service, representing a significant step forward in the Cook Government’s commitment to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all who enjoy our coastal waters.

For the first time, three marine rescue vessels will be permanently moored at the marina on ready-access jetties for fast deployment, significantly improving safety for recreational boaters, fishers and other water users in Perth’s north.
