The Gosford Waterfront Precinct

The Gosford Waterfront Precinct is the first strategy of ‘Our City, Our Destiny’ to be implemented. A key objective of ‘Our City, Our Destiny Masterplan’ is to link Gosford to its waterfront, an objective achieved by this project. But more than that, it is designed as a catalyst project. By focusing first on the waterfront precinct, Gosford capitalises on its natural assets and emphasises the need for the city centre to reconnect with its waterfront.
