Redevelopment of the Newcastle and Merewether Ocean Baths pavilions

Redevelopment of the Newcastle and Merewether Ocean Baths pavilions
November 1, 2019

The City of Newcastle is inviting expressions of interest to redevelop the iconic Newcastle and Merewether Ocean Baths pavilions in overhauls that could include restaurants, recreational and community facilities and other services.

Newcastle Ocean Bath’s iconic art deco exterior is proposed to be retained in any redevelopment, while new public change rooms, disabled access, car parking, new seating, shading and other community facilities will be mandatory inclusions at both sites. 

As well as reinvigorating the baths precincts, the final outcomes will promote access to the Bathers Way, preserve views from lifeguard/first aid rooms and provide swimmers year-round protection from prevailing winds. 

Some 5,800 metre² of space is on offer at the 1922-bulit Newcastle Ocean Baths and 2,200 metre² at the Merewether pavilion, under leases of up to 21 years.

Expressions of Interest can be made via www.tenderlink.com/newcastle/ and close on Tuesday 17th December at 2pm.
