On exhibition - Proposed fees for vessel berths


Council will commence charging an annual licence fee for all vessel berths in Anchorage Island Harbour in January 2024.

There are four types of berth facilities present in the Anchorage Island Harbour:

  • Private pontoon with private access – Mariners Drive east, (shown red in the image)
  • Private ponton with public access – the Rotunda Boardwalk and eastern rock revetment (shown green in the image)
  • Moorings (shown yellow in the image)
  • Jetty boardwalk (blue in image)

Income from berth licence fees, coupled with a Council budget allocation to cover the public use of the site, will allow Anchorage Island Harbour to operate with financial equity and sustainability.

  • Implement a system of vessel berth licensing
  • Manage risk and support emergency response
  • Protect harbour amenity and environmental values
