Jetty4Shores Project

Since 2018, the NSW Government has been carrying out a major revitalisation of the Jetty Precinct. The Jetty Foreshores area is owned by the NSW Governement as Crown Lands. 

Take a look at the State Government's Plans. 

Council has previously managed some parts of the foreshores as the Corporate Manager of the Coffs Coast State Park Trust. 

Background on Jetty4Shores Project works:

Stages 2-4 of the Jetty4Shores Project were officially opened by Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight, and Luke Hartsuyker, the Federal Member for Cowper, on 30 October 2017.

These works comprised:

  • an open plaza area with wide shallow steps onto the northern end of Jetty Beach;
  • a market and events space; and
    a boardwalk around the dunes and vegetation, linking the plaza to the historic Jetty and market space.
  • Tenders for Stages 2-4 were invited early in January 2017 and the successful tenderer, A J Pipelines and Construction Pty Ltd, was announced at the beginning of April 2017.

The detailed design documents for Stages 2 - 4 can be viewed below:

The Australian Government’s Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development’s National Stronger Regions Fund is funding half the cost of the $9.2m Jetty4Shores Project.  

The NSW Government is developing a new masterplan for the Jetty Foreshores and wants your ideas and feedback on the precinct's future.


​Council adopted the Jetty4Shores Concept Plan, implementation plan and preliminary budget estimates at its Ordinary Meeting on 24 October 2013. 

These plans were developed by a project team consisting of Coffs Harbour City Council, representatives from Crown Lands and a Community Reference Group. An extensive three-month exhibition was held from May to August 2013. A total of 1348 submissions were received in response to the exhibition. 

Stage 1, the Jetty Walkway, was officially opened on 25 October 2015. The Walkway is a five-metre wide decorative concrete shared pathway/cycleway, which tells the story of our Aboriginal and European heritage, the Jetty structure and the industrial use of the Foreshores. Construction of 60-space car park was finished in early November 2016.
