BERRY HEAD (Coastal Waters) AREA of SPECIAL PROTECTION
Torquay Harbour’s Town Dock facility has 170 deep water berths, designed for vessels up to 12 metres, plus 14 docks for the dry
storage of personal watercraft. The Town Dock is aimed at providing affordable berthing and the facility is occupied and enjoyed by the local community. This also serves an increasing number of visiting yachtsmen to Torquay with a visitors’ pontoon, which doubles as a maritime events area. Water and electric points are located within this busy location.
The pontoons incorporate features you’d expect to see on marinas, such as a trolley park, general waste/recyclable waste receptacles. The facility has coded access and is not available to the general public, thereby maintaining security and privacy. The inner harbour has recently been converted to marina-style pontoon berthing providing a further 173 berths with facilities as found on the Town Dock.
