About this project.
The Breakwall in Port Macquarie is very popular and is well used by the local community and visitors. The space is so well used that there are often times when it is difficult to move on the existing footpath. There is also limited seating, poor lighting and no arrival experience at the end of the journey.

A concept has been developed that we think addresses these issues by widening the footpath to between 5 and 6 metres, putting in more seating, improving lighting and constructing a lookout at the end of the walkway. The concept also explores creating 3 fishing platforms and introducing wayfinding signage, tree planting and shelters. A key aspect of the design has been to ensure people with all abilities can access and use the space.

Note: This walkway is an asset of the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) who are supportive of the proposed plan to improve the Breakwall. Following community feedback any modifications will be considered before handing the final plan over to the DPI for more detailed design and construction.
