10 Terminal and Parklands Renewal Project

View of Middle Harbour from Middle Head
The Harbour Trust is beginning to reimagine the 10 Terminal buildings at Middle Head in Mosman.

In April 2019, the Commonwealth Government committed $10 million in funding to help realise the vision for Middle Head. Our vision for the precinct is to create a contemporary place for the community, delivering significant public domain benefit through the creation of parkland with heritage buildings reimagined and activated for community and commercial uses.

Key outcomes for Middle Head
  • Restore and adapt the complex of single-storey brick buildings for new community and commercial uses
  • Demolish the two-storey timber barracks and re-landscape the site as public parkland, opening up views over Middle Harbour
  • Create a new easy grade walking loop around the precinct with vantage points over the surrounding waterways
  • Interpret the site’s heritage, acknowledging the First Nations heritage, and the layers of environmental and military heritage.

The planned outcomes were amended in close consultation with the community, culminating in the Middle Head Management Plan 2017

Heritage Buildings and New Parklands: The removal of the two-storey timber barracks will allow for the creation of new public parkland. A new easy grade walking loop around the precinct will be connected to the existing and proposed path network in the National Park. The heritage buildings will be restored with all external heritage features retained, contaminant material removed and buildings brought up to code. No new buildings are proposed.

Buildings Adapted and Reactivated: Diverse uses are intended, including public facing uses that foster community such as exhibition spaces, food & beverage, interpretation, education or community meeting spaces. Commercial tenancies will be considered in discrete spaces, accommodation use will not be considered.

History Revealed: We will work with NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service for a unified headland story. A digital-led interpretation strategy will focus on the key themes and stories of Middle Head’s national significance and heritage including natural, environmental and military heritage, Australian School of Pacific Administration (ASOPA) history and First Nations custodianship, heritage and continuing connection to Middle Head.
