Some of the other developments known to be in the planning stage (some closer to fruition than others; a safe port boat harbour and an abalone farm including world class seafood restaurant with quality accomodation on the coast.
It is also envisaged in the draft town planning scheme currently going through the approval process that the town centre will be linked to the river via a continous commercial precinct. It is hoped this will also lead to high class development of the riverfront while being careful to maintain that which Augusta is renowned for - pristine environment.
A town with a big future! A town to be a part of!
