Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority

Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority owns and manages some of the State’s most significant assets, including Sydney’s heritage and cultural precincts at The Rocks and Darling Harbour.

The Authority’s vision is to make extraordinary places the world talks about by preserving and enhancing the inter-generational value of the State, heritage and cultural assets it manages.

The Foreshore Authority owns more than $1 billion in assets and employs around 165 staff. It also owns sites at White Bay Power Station, Rozelle Rail Yards and Ballast Point and manages other major waterfront assets around Sydney Harbour on behalf of other NSW Government agencies.

The Authority manages significant commercial and retail leases, provides security, cleaning, building maintenance and other facility management services, and cares for the public domain and approximately 140 heritage items.

The Authority also operates visitor and marketing services and holds major events in The Rocks and Darling Harbour each year. Between them, the precincts attract around 40 million visitors annually.

Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority was formed in 1999 under the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority Act, 1998 to consolidate the work and functions of City West Development Corporation, Darling Harbour Authority and Sydney Cove Authority.
