An Albanese Labor Government will help breathe new life into Boat Harbour Beach with a $4.5 million investment in the redevelopment of the foreshore.
While a beautiful holiday destination, Boat Harbour Beach’s ageing infrastructure and outdated lay out mean Tasmanians can’t make the most of this incredible natural asset.
That’s why Labor will partner with the Waratah-Wynyard Council to deliver more space for the surf club and the broader community, while delivering safety and accessibility upgrades to benefit locals and visitors.
This investment will deliver more usable space to the community, better vehicle access, new play equipment, parking areas and better access to the beach for everyone.
Importantly, this investment will include the establishment of a community centre for the area and provide the Surf Club with fit for purpose facilities, delivering a better surf club for locals while upgrading the facility’s storage capacity and allowing the club to grow.
This investment will not only create local jobs in the construction phase, but will deliver a better future to businesses, the Boat Harbour Beach community and visitors across the region.

‘One look at Boat Harbour Beach and you understand what an incredibly beautiful place it is.
‘Labor’s investment will mean that the quality of the facilities matches the natural beauty of this region, giving locals and visitors the facilities they deserve.
Comments attributable to Chris Lynch, Labor Candidate for Braddon
‘Spending the day at Boat Harbour Beach is a time-honoured tradition for almost everyone on the North-West Coast. This beautiful place is being let down by outdated and substandard facilities and access.
‘By partnering with the local council, an Albanese Labor Government will enhance the experience of spending time at this magnificent beach, whether a local or a visitor. At the same time, investing in this iconic coastal community will create more jobs, delivering a better life for locals and supporting the future growth of businesses across the region.
‘This plan will ease Boat Harbour Beach’s notorious traffic and parking problems and, importantly, give the community a new hub and meeting place.’
