Shorebird Reserve

“Helping nature lovers enjoy a pristine local ecosystem without disturbing or damaging it”

Executive Summary

Following a detailed proposal process, Fleetwood was engaged to design, construct and install a spectacular new viewing platform at Taren Point Shorebird Reserve, at the edge of Woolooware Bay in Sydney’s south. Together with a new hardwood boardwalk and bespoke bird hide, the completed project allows nature lovers to get up close and observe the migratory birds that regularly visit the area during low tide - without disturbing either the birds or their sensitive local habitat.

Fleetwood involvement

Fleetwood Urban was awarded the project by Sutherland Shire Council following a detailed proposal process that included a 3D visualisation and walk through. We worked closely with the Council’s planners from concept and design to manufacture and installation, ensuring every aspect met their strict guidelines. We then delivered each element with the utmost of efficiency and consideration for the native Shorebird Reserve habitat. The centrepiece structure was the new viewing platform, constructed and assembled on site using timber driven piles, Class 1 Australian Hardwood superstructure, decking and posts. All cables and fixings are from stainless steel.
