Located at the northern entrance to Sydney Harbour, North Head / Car-rang-gel in Manly, is one of Australia’s most spectacular landmarks...

This treasured public destination has significant ties to First Nations culture and Australia’s military history, and hosts some of the nation's most precious natural ecosystems.

Draft Concept

In 2020, the Harbour Trust had a conversation with the community about their values and aspirations for North Head Sanctuary. Community aspirations spanned themes of preservation and conservation for the natural environment, Indigenous culture and military history.

Informed by these collective aspirations, the Harbour Trust released a Draft Concept on 1 May 2021. It proposed signature initiatives aimed at preserving, restoring and reinterpreting North Head Sanctuary as an invaluable community destination.

Public consultation

Between 1 May and 11 June 2021, the Harbour Trust invited the community to have their say on the Draft Concept for North Head Sanctuary. Opportunities to provide feedback and learn more about the Draft Concept included an online survey, a walkshop, a series of virtual workshops, a webinar and pop-up community feedback sessions. Additionally, the First Nations Community were invited to take a survey, participate in a one-on-one interview and attend a yarning session.
