Pacific Harbour Marina is now open for business in South East Queensland. Positioned to allow enjoyment of the world-class aquatic playground that surrounds it, local boaties and interstate cruisers are likely to welcome the new marine amenity.
“The fact that Bribie has no treacherous bars to cross means quick and direct ocean access without being at the mercy of the tides. This is a unique attribute compared to many other parts of the coast,” said Marina Manager, Michael Bourke.
With the first stage complete, 82 single and multihull berths in sizes up to 18m have been made available for rent, and a limited number for sale. “Considering the quality boating available in the area, these present as the best value berths on the coast” claimed Michael.
The largest berth available has already been snapped up, as residents in the area become the first to take advantage of the new facility. Located within an hour's drive of Brisbane and the airports, all boaties are likely to find it a convenient location.
Pacific Harbour Marina is part of a $1.8 billion master-planned canal and golf community on Bribie Island. Boating visitors have access to Queensland's number one ranked golf course and the superb facilities at the Golf and Country Club including fine dining, tennis courts, pool, gym, day spa, and steam room.
Pacific Harbour is part of Star Marinas Group that includes Coffs Harbour International Marina and Tin Can Bay Marina. “Each Marina is located in an iconic destination for both land and sea experiences”, said Warren Russell, Star Marinas Operations Manager. “Each location has something special for recreational and commercial boating and now has a range of berths available for purchase or rent.”
Pacific Harbour offers 30km of 4WD beaches, a wealth of camping sites, and National Park walking tracks to suit all fitness levels. The passage itself, set against the backdrop of the Glass House Mountains, includes a 6,000ha Marine Park, wrecks, dugongs, turtles, picnic areas and a multitude of crabbing spots, (although their exact locations are more guarded.)
Notably, the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron (RQYS) has planned to make the Marina its northern base for sports fishing, including a weighing station for Billfish Competitions.
The Marina facility includes showers and restrooms, laundry, car park, wireless internet access, a holding tank pump-out facility, security access control, and a short-term berthing jetty. A comprehensive maintenance and refueling facility is situated nearby allowing patrons to have all the services they require conveniently located, without those facilities detracting from the peacefulness of the Marina Village.
Future stages for Pacific Harbour will see an entertainment and retail precinct, gated villas and waterfront apartments. Specialty stores earmarked for the Marina Village include a mini-market/deli, bakery, news agency, bottle shop, hairdresser and cinema.
Waterfront restaurants, cafés and bars will have the marina buzzing with both boaties and locals onboard for rest and relaxation.
Offering a sea change in the marina business, Star Marinas has committed itself to delivering boaties professional management and modern facilities, spliced with old-fashioned friendly service and a thorough local knowledge. Tin Can Bay was recently awarded a ‘Certificate of Excellence' in the Marina of the Year Awards by the Marina Industries Association of Australia – the only Queensland Marina to achieve this accolade.
Star Marinas provides boaties with incentives and the flexibility to use credit between the three marinas.
“Star Marinas have raised the bar in marina construction, management and sales,” said Warren. “We have already had a very positive response from the boating community.”
