Refresh Vaucluse and Diamond Bay

Sydney Water is building a new pump station at Parsley Bay, along with supporting infrastructure, which will redirect untreated wastewater away from one of three of Sydney’s last remaining outfalls in Vaucluse and transfer it to the Bondi treatment plant

Currently, around four million litres of untreated wastewater is discharged directly into the ocean in the Vaucluse and Diamond Bay area.

Upgrading the wastewater system in Vaucluse and Diamond Bay offers multiple benefits - improving the harbour and coastal water quality, as well as protecting the health of the community and marine ecology.

Sydney Water expect the work will start in mid-2024. Sydney Water will ensure amenities remain available throughout the work in Parsley Bay.

For the safety of the community and workers, the Caretakers Cottage area, kiosk and car park will be closed during the construction of new amenities.

Once the construction of the amenities block is completed, the kiosk will be reopened to the community.

The Parsley Bay Reserve car park and vehicle access to Horler Avenue will be closed during construction from 29 May 2024 to late 2026. Read Sydney Water’s notification(PDF, 311KB) for more information.

Pedestrian access to Parsley Bay Reserve and the swimming area will be available via the existing access tracks from Fitzwilliam Road and The Crescent.
