A spectacular new viewing platform at Taren Point Shorebird Reserve, on the edge of Woolooware Bay in Sydney’s south, allows nature lovers to get up close and observe the migratory birds that regularly visit the area during low tide, and they can do so without disturbing them or their habitat.

Fleetwood Urban was pleased to be awarded this project by Sutherland Shire Council following a detailed proposal process that included a 3D visualisation and walk-through.

We are proud to have designed, constructed and installed this new structure, which includes a bird hide and a boardwalk and was created using natural materials to ensure it is in harmony with the local environment.

The viewing platform is constructed from timber driven piles, Class 1 Australian Hardwood superstructure, decking and posts. All cables and fixings are from stainless steel. The project was constructed and assembled on site, with particular care to limiting the penetration and disturbance of existing ground conditions.

These additions to the Taren Point Shorebird Reserve are crucial because it means that local residents and visitors can now observe and enjoy the area’s unique ecosystem without damaging the environment. Our work means that this precious section of Sydney will be preserved for future generations.
