Henley Square construction zone

Consultation has concluded

Welcome to the construction zone! Site works are well under way. Day by day we see an exciting new Henley Square emerge in this significant project for the City of Charles Sturt.

The design for the Henley Square includes:

  • Improvements to the formal square and outdoor dining areas, including the incorporation of new shade protection, water feature, seating, interactive lighting and high quality urban elements
  • The reconfiguration of the car park areas to the north and south of the Square increasing car parking space
  • Improvements to the Seaview Road/Main Street intersection and expansion of the pedestrian activated crossing
  • Reconfiguration of the lawn space to better support events and public gatherings
  • New promenade areas incorporating Coast Park, cycling and walking facilities
This is your one stop shop to keep track of project updates, ask questions about progress and keep up to date with the Henley Square Facebook page.

    The funky play showers are in place and set the scene spectacularly at the northern end of Henley Square.

    What a fun way to end your day at the beach!


    The timber battens are making their way to the Square shelters and the Ripple lounge being installed. The jetty access will be closed for a couple of days to complete the boardwalk and the interface with the jetty. Apologies in advance for any inconvenience.

    The southern car park is open and ready for visitors!
