Onslow Community Boating Precinct Stage One - maritime upgrades

Beadon Creek, Onslow


The Onslow Community Boating Precinct, being delivered at the Beadon Creek (Onslow) maritime facility by the Department of Transport in partnership with the Shire of Ashburton, will provide economic and community benefits to Onslow and the wider Pilbara region. 

Stage 1 of the project is now complete. Stage 1 of the project was delivered in three phases:

Stage 1A saw most works completed to deliver the new dredged basin and rock revetments, two-lane boat ramp with central floating jetty, new sealed car park, drainage and lighting, and was opened to the public on 30 July 2022.

Stage 1B saw the old boat ramp removed and the rock revetments extended and a small beach area established with works completed in September 2022.

Stage 1C, the final works as part of Stage 1, was completed in August 2023, with the area further enhanced through asphalting of the car park, line marking, kerbed traffic islands, landscaping, installation of new toilets and reinstatement of the fish cleaning station.

Detailed design for a future Stage 2, which will include fully serviced boat pens, public jetties and further landside development is also underway, however this stage is not currently funded.
