Welcome to Newport Marina
an experience. an icon. a destination
A unique opportunity
The Newport Marina site is a site like no other in our region. Surrounded on three sides by water, this ‘brownfield’ site is a unique opportunity that cannot be replicated elsewhere.
The 10,000square meter area is currently underutilised however has so much potential to become something the whole community can be proud of.
The proposal will transform the site into an iconic destination with benefits to the community, the tourism industry, our economy and your lifestyle.
Retail and Food Outlets
Boutique and exclusive retail outlets will complement the Peninsula culture, offering unique and exclusive designs, homewares, clothing and gifts.
Be tempted by a variety of food options and dining experiences, including cafes, light eats, à la carte dining experiences or maybe a scoop of ice-cream (or two).
Dine casually at one of the many outlets, picnic alongside the Plaza, find your space on the water’s edge. Savoury treats, sweet things, tasty and tantalising deli platters, international cuisine, creative food options all for you to enjoy.
Take in the uninterrupted views of the marina with your family or significant other, enjoying the beauty that is Newport. With open spaces for lounging, the plaza will be an inviting destination to stop, relax, and unwind.
The Plaza’s versatility to combine alfresco dining, entertainment and children’s pop jet plaza, with uninterrupted views across the marina, makes it an attractive destination to meet up with friends and family.
Landscaped features characterise the coastal location and unite communal areas so you can personalise your experience at the Marina. Lounge in the large open plaza, seek solace on the water’s edge, admire the boats from the pontoon or enjoy a bird’s eye view on a balcony above.
The Promenade Deck
Circle the water’s edge, basking in the beautiful Queensland weather. Landscaped features provide seating and a platform to capture views and photo opportunities, while landscaping materials clearly define the promenade walkway for designated safe, pedestrian use as you passage to your favourite destination.
Stroll the deck with your family, soak up the sun on the weekend or watch the sunset or sunrise over a drink with friends. Whatever you desire, the Promenade Deck offers you and our community the opportunity to interact with Newport’s glorious waterways, one of the many aspects that makes life in our community so appealing.
A community place
Hot summer’s day or looking for something for the kids or grandkids to experience while you relax with a coffee or a bite to eat?
The Newport Marina development has something for everyone, including our smallest community members.
Kids can enjoy the pop-jet plaza (which can be turned on and off), visit the proposed aquarium and marine education centre, explore the boardwalk being dazzled by the boats or enjoy an ice-cream in the grassy plaza.
The Newport Marina will be a place for everyone.
The wonders of the ocean
Newport Marina is working closely with education providers to improve access to students and tourists alike to the one-of-a-kind Moreton Bay.
On completion, locals and visitors will be able to stop by the proposed marine education centre and learn about our ‘big blue’ and it’s animals, visit the proposed aquarium, and students can take part in marine education courses and research, removing the need for people to travel outside our area to do so.
The Newport Marina will be the gateway to the incredible Moreton Bay.
Wedding destination and life’s celebrations
The conference facility, ideally located on the podium level, is a singular jetty suspended over the Marina. Orientating north-west capturing sea breezes and sunsets with views expanding to the Glasshouse Mountains, this is an ideal wedding destination or location for celebratory occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries.
With onsite accommodation, you can host your reception and guests at one destination. Imagine driving up to the Marina, stepping out at the circular drop off that will wow your guest. Picture a day filled with spectacular sunset views captured across ocean and mountain outlook and picturesque photo opportunities amongst luxury motor boats and glorious sailboats. This is your day, your celebration at the Newport Marina.
The journey to your destination
With so many other voyage options to choose from, you may prefer to forgo the car as you make the most of the region’s bike paths, securing your bike at the onsite bicycle parking or make use of the connecting concrete pathways on the surrounding road network provided for a leisurely stroll to the Marina.
If taking to our waterways is your passion, navigate to Newport Marina by jet ski, paddleboard, kayak or boat, making use of the dedicated community pontoon. Anchors and purpose-built structures provide confidence to secure your watercraft.
The site also has 226 car parks proposed on site should you choose to drive by car to the destination.
Lush, Coastal landscaping
The planting at Newport Marina will be dense and coastal. The planting approach will create a gardenesque feeling with clearly visible layers of coastal planting. The planting strategy will apply a combination of unique species selected for their ability to enhance the overall vitality, character and compliment the architectural character.
Plant selection will not be solely based on ornamental qualities, but generate a sense of identity and comfort, taking cues from the surrounding environment and more broadly, South East Queensland. Planting provides elements of screening, scale, shelter and colour.
A residential offering like no other
The Newport Marina’s defining point is its permanent residential offering. Ensuring a strong onsite community and offering spaces for community members to live enhanced, Newport Marina will be home to 93 apartments.
The residential offering is like no other in Newport, filling a void in the South-East Queensland market. Somewhere people can live a low-maintenance lifestyle while having their boat at their doorstep. Somewhere they can retain the waterside lifestyle they have grown to love or that they desire, have the space to create memories with kids and grandkids and host their family and friends in high-quality accommodation.
Stay on the doorstep of Moreton Bay
Share this destination with your loved ones or business associates visiting the area with the short-term stay facilities on site. 120 studio rooms with private balconies will be on offer, as well as 24 serviced apartments.
Step out onto the cusp of beauty. The podium level, stretching like a jetty over the Marina, includes superior views of our region. Resort-style lounges and unique interior furnishings will adorn the area perfectly, creating an intimate and inviting space.
The podium level also incorporates an infinity pool that floats above the water’s edge, casting views across Moreton Bay and offering a superior outlook over the plaza below. Landscaped features on the podium define spaces to lounge, dine and socialise in filtered sunlight and star filled nights. Dedicated exercise facilities and change rooms promote a healthy lifestyle.
Small and engaging rooms that open seamlessly to larger open spaces, the hotel’s conference and business lounge facilities can host your business conventions and workshops – from small to large. Onsite, private catering facilities can design menus to complement audiences. High tech visual and audio equipment and state-of-the-art lighting will endorse your professionalism and add vitality to your presentation.
Already home to local marine commercial endeavours, the Newport Marina development will provide an enhanced harbour for recreational boaties and tourism providers, as well as provide an unsurpassed fully operational marina catering for 205 marine vessels equipped to accommodate liveaboards.
The marina, which has offered marina berthing services since 1987, will remain fully operational both during development and after. On completion, the marina service will see significant upgrades and rival the country’s best.
