About the project

In December 2022, Property and Development NSW (PDNSW) launched a Registrations of Interest (ROI) process for an 8.2-hectare parcel of land on the Lake Illawarra foreshore at King Street and Northcliffe Drive, Warrawong.

PDNSW is exploring opportunities and adaptive re-use options for the site.

As distinct from an Expression of Interest (EOI) or sale process, the ROI has provided all stakeholders with the opportunity to submit ideas and proposals on how the land can be put to a better and higher use to deliver economic and social benefits for Warrawong locals and visitors to Lake Illawarra.

The RIO closed on 17 February 2023. Submissions and feedback have been received from residents, not-for-profits and market participants.

All submissions and feedback are being carefully considered to help inform the next stage of the process.

Site details

The site subject to the ROI is a small portion (approximately 8.2 hectares) of the 32 hectares of government-owned land along the Kully Bay foreshore at Lake Illawarra.

The 8.2-hectare site is currently zoned primarily SP3 Tourist and a small portion is zoned C2 Environmental Conservation.

The remainder of the government-owned land will not be impacted and will continue to be used by sporting and community groups. This includes the sporting field and amenities, recreational area and shelter at Northcliffe Drive and King Street, lagoon and Kully Bay Park.


PDNSW, on behalf of the NSW Government, acquired 32 hectares of land on the Lake Illawarra foreshore at Warrawong from the former Lake Illawarra Authority when the authority was dissolved in 2014.

The NSW Government has invested almost $3 million to improve the public amenity of the lake foreshore at Warrawong, including the repair of the King Street jetty and upgrades to the market’s car park, fencing, and the installation of security cameras at Northcliffe Drive.

Next steps

All Registrations of Interest submissions are being considered.

The government will consider next steps once this assessment has been completed, including whether to proceed to a formal tender process.
