Shell Cove is a new town that will house approximately 10,000 permanent residents as well as a large tourist component.
Shellharbour City Council has championed this project in order to provide a catalyst for economic development and employment generation for both the city and the region.
The project has now been underway for 12 years with over 1300 housing sites sold, and an 18 hole championship golf course completed.
The Project uses the cash flow from the sale of residential housing sites to pay for the infrastructure needed to create the boatharbour/marina precinct.
Preparatory construction work for the $140m boatharbour/marina commenced in 2007 with major works proposed to be undertaken between 2012 to 2020.
