Empire Marina Bobbin Head, in Sydney’s northern suburbs, is the only marina in Australia to hold the coveted title of Marina of the Year in 2011/2012, as well as being awarded Five Gold Anchors from the Marina Industries Association (MIA). It’s quite some feat, and one that establishes Empire Marina Bobbin Head as one of the leading marinas in the country.
Empire Marina’s vision is to provide premium quality facilities combined with excellent personal service. They’ve created a relaxed enjoyable atmosphere that encourages boat owners and non-owners alike to enjoy their peaceful, unique location at Bobbin Head in Sydney’s northern suburbs. Positioned deep into Cowan Creek within the Ku-ring-Gai Chase National Park, the marina is surrounded by virgin natural bushland that tumbles into the tranquil coves and inlets. It’s a little urban treasure, accessible by boat from Broken Bay via the Hawkesbury River.
Boat owners looking to service or maintain their vessels will find a travel lift haul out facility at Empire Marina. Plus, onsite there’s a shipwright, mechanical and electrical services, boat brokerage, detailing and trimming businesses.
But the real attraction of Empire Marina Bobbin Head is the ability to unwind either on board or on the marina deck, soaking up the silence of this serene bushland location. Galley Foods is a popular, relaxed meeting place with both indoor and outdoor dining areas. Fully licensed and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on weekends (check with the club for weekday lunch and dinner opening times), visitors and marina patrons are all welcome to drop in for a meal or drink. They can also provision your vessel for a picnic on board.
Empire Marina Bobbin Head is one of those rare big city treasures that the locals like to keep to themselves: sitting on the alfresco deck listening to a chorus of birds as dusk settles, it’s hard to believe that just beyond the eucalyptus trees lays a city of four million people.
