Brand New Location … Brand New Boat

Where is Bobbin Head?

Sheltered on all sides by the beautiful bushland and wooded hills of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Empire Marina, Bobbin Head is located at the gateway to Sydney’s largest sheltered waterway, Broken Bay.

SMART Boating’s newest location provides owners living in Sydney’s upper North Shore with immediate access to some of the best waterways in Sydney.

Bobbin Head is ideally located for boat share owners living in the north and north-west of Sydney. Empire Marina is only 15 minutes’ drive from St Ives, 20 minutes from Wahroonga and 25 minutes from the Hills District.

Secluded and serene, it’s really hard to believe this untouched piece of paradise is merely minutes away from Sydney’s upper north shore and less than 30 minutes’ drive from the CBD.
