Wyndham Harbour will be Victoria’s largest marina when completed in 2016, boasting over 1,000 marina berths and offering 400 apartments and residential dwellings. Developed by Lyons Capital, the 73 ha development has carefully considered the surrounding marine environment, and will provide a network or open spaces, wetlands and shared pathways.
The Wyndham Harbour site is located approximately 25 kilometres south-west of Melbourne’s CBD in the City of Wyndham, one of Victoria’s fastest growing municipalities. Sustainability initiatives have been incorporated into the overarching concept of the marina, offering extensive environmental benefits to the site, the neighbouring Port Phillip Bay and the surrounding land uses. Sustainability initiatives include photovoltaic panels, wetlands to capture and treat stormwater, drought resistant plantings and recycled water for irrigation purposes.
