The transformation of The Bays Precinct offers the opportunity to support ‘blue’ economic activities of port and maritime industries, combined with a new mixed-use innovation district.

A transformed White Bay Power Station, and future transport infrastructure, will act as catalysts for regeneration and for knowledge-intensive sectors expanding throughout The Bays Precinct. This would enable the NSW Government to position the Destination for the future by leveraging its strategic position in Sydney Harbour to create an economic hub that will promote Sydney’s global economic competitiveness.


  • A new innovation district anchored by the knowledge-intensive industries of the White Bay Power Station technology hub.
  • Retention of important elements of port and maritime industry.
