Sydney Harbour boating destinations
Destination marinas welcome boaters to use facilities and amenities on Sydney Harbour. Here's how to find and use these destinations.
Find a Sydney Harbour destination
Sydney Harbour is one of the finest natural harbours in the world, with a foreshore perimeter of 310km.
To get the most out of a day boating on Sydney Harbour, Transport for NSW has partnered with 19 exclusive marinas to improve access to quality services and amenities for boaters on the harbour.
Use the Sydney Harbour Boating Destinations interactive map to find courtesy moorings, marinas, wharves, boat ramps and more.
Identifying destination marinas
When you're out on Sydney Harbour, look for the green boating destination marina banner or flag, and the blue berth banner or flag, displayed prominently at participating marinas.

- Destination berth

Blue and white icons are used on the map to identify the available services at each destination marina.
When you arrive at the boating destination marina
When you arrive at a destination marina look out for the blue destination berth banner to see where you can tie up.
Some smaller marinas may not have berths available, but do have destination moorings. Please contact the marina operator to arrange a destination mooring.
Each marina has its own house rules that visitors must follow when making use of the facilities.
- Marina house rules will be displayed near the destination berths or at other prominent locations on the marina.
- Each marina can only accommodate a limited number of visiting vessels at a time.
- Marinas may impose time limits to help manage demand.
- If you arrive at a marina and the destination berths are occupied, please be patient or try another boating destination marina.
Other public access points
The Boating Destinations Plan map highlights the range of facilities, amenities and public infrastructure available to recreational boaters on Sydney Harbour, including boat ramps, public moorings and ferry wharves that are no longer part of the public transport network or are only used by ferries during commuter peaks.
The Destinations Plan forms part of the NSW Government’s Maritime Policy Agenda, which includes:
- initiatives aimed at improving boat safety
- increasing boat storage and waterways access
- reducing red tape.
