On Sunday, 22 Oct 2023, the facility was opened just in time for the much-anticipated Maroubra Fun Run and Spring Festival, marking a significant improvement to this coastal hotspot.

The new amenities building aims to elevate the beachgoers’ experience by providing essential services in a picturesque setting. This addition comes as a response to the growing demand for facilities that cater to both residents and visitors.

The South Maroubra Beach amenities building features male, female, and unisex bathrooms, showers, baby change facilities, and a communal wash basin, providing accessible and much-needed conveniences for beachgoers. In addition to serving the general public, this project has also created additional storage rooms for the South Maroubra Surf Lifesaving Club and Surfing NSW, aiding the local community’s sporting and recreational activities.

To ensure ease of access for everyone, the project also included upgrades to paths, landscaped areas, and parking spaces. These enhancements make South Maroubra Beach more welcoming, promoting a safe and enjoyable environment for all visitors.

Positioned adjacent to the South Maroubra Surf Lifesaving Club, the amenities building is perfectly located for beach enthusiasts and those looking to enjoy a day of picnicking or follow the scenic coastal walk. The architects behind the project have prioritized sustainability and preserving the natural surroundings. The building has been designed to complement the natural sand dunes, maximising the use of natural light and ventilation.

Furthermore, the building was constructed on an empty green patch, ensuring that no trees, including the native Banksia, had to be removed during the construction process. This commitment to environmental preservation aligns with the broader goal of promoting sustainable development in the region.

“This area of the beach is incredibly popular as people pass through on a coastal walk or stop to have a BBQ behind the beach. The new building will ensure visiting South Maroubra is much more comfortable,” Randwick City Council Mayor Philipa Veitch, who inaugurated the building amidst a crowd of enthusiastic community members, said.

The South Maroubra Beach amenities building was a major investment, taking a year to complete from conception to its official opening.
