Myola Active Transport Improvements

Council has commenced design and development on active transport improvements at the southern end of Myola where a ferry access links Round the Bay Walk from Huskisson to Callala Bay.

These improvements include formalised car parking arrangements, public amenities and connection of the existing shared path network to the Currambene Creek ferry landing, with a provision for disabled access.

This project is part funded under the Building Better Regions Fund Round 3 (50 per cent), and Council funding (50 per cent), with a total project value of $925,000.

Council is now seeking community feedback on the Myola Active Transport Improvements

Background

Myola is a unique location encompassing Callala Beach and Currambene Creek. It is also an important Aboriginal cultural and heritage location.

Myola is a very popular destination that provides great diversity of activities, including fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming and other family friendly activities for the local community and visitors.

During the peak season parking becomes quite congested, which leads to informal parking that impacts on the sensitive coastal forest environment.

It is also a key location where a ferry service provides an important link between Huskisson and the northern side of Jervis Bay allowing access to Myola, Callala Beach and Callala Bay.

The ferry link allows access to the popular Round the Bay Walks which currently connects Hyams Beach all the way to Huskisson. The recently completed section around the Callala Bay headland, along with Callala Beach, provides a completed section to Catherine Street, Myola. However, there is a missing link (approximately 500m) to the ferry landing zone in Myola.

Objectives

The proposed works aim to provide supporting infrastructure for the continuation of the Round the Bay Walk, improving accessibility and amenities, whilst minimising the current impacts to the Crown land, and adjacent residential area.
