When we published an article about the Bellerive ferry last week, readers asked us to elaborate on the Kangaroo Bay development we mentioned. We’ve noticed there’s quite an elaborate plan for access to a ferry terminal in the blueprint, so that’s good news!

While the roadworks on Cambridge Road and Rosny Hill Road (near Eastlands) have been a teeny little bit inconvenient lately, they’re not enough to prevent people visiting Bellerive right now. The works seem to be progressing at the (frustratingly slow) pace they usually do with any major overhaul, but will be such an amazing improvement to Kangaroo Bay once they’re finished.

While the eastern shore already has some fabulous eating establishments (think Three Little Ducks, Abundance on the Quay, Currency Cafe, Plumb Cafe at Blundstone Arena, Retro Fudge Bar, Blue Envy, Moto Vecchia… okay, somebody stop me now!) it will be interesting to see what else pops up once the Kangaroo Bay waterfront is looking schmick. The Clarence City Council is talking accommodation, retail spaces and further hospitality. Imagine if the proposed resort on Rosny Hill Nature Recreation Area went ahead too… wow! Even more jobs for the region.
