Only one hour north of the Sydney CBD the serene Akuna Bay marina is located on the picturesque Hawkesbury and Cowan River in the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.


Akuna is the Aboriginal reference for ‘flowing water’, which is fitting to the Cowan and Hawkesbury River systems which combine in this idyllic location. Situated approximately a 20 minute drive from St Ives, secluded beaches and protected bays make it an ideal place to drop anchor for a quiet afternoon or an overnight stay.

With open water just 20 minutes from the marina, available on-site are 190 marina berths, dry boat storage for vessels up to 24 ft, jet ski storage, a boat ramp and a range of marine related services.


Enjoy the luxury of having your boat ready to cruise whenever the mood strikes by storing your vessel in a wet berth. Our dockmasters are available 7 days to assist you with ropes at your berth upon departure and return.


Relax with the convenience of the D’ALBORA Marinas dry boat storage facilities: have your boat in the water within the hour, allow the dockmaster to retrieve and return your vessel to a secure and undercover location. An end-to-end service that eliminates the need for trailers, boat ramps and the cost of anti-foul.

The dry storage facility at D’ALBORA Marinas Akuna Bay can accommodate boats as large as 24 ft.


Now open at the marina, SHED at Akuna Bay is an exciting bar and eatery offering a relaxed dining experience with a contemporary Italian twist. Stop in for a quick drink or a long lunch overlooking the marina and national park.  SHED also offers a range of take away meals and drinks to enjoy out on the water.

“Where to berth your boat? If you can ask that question then you’re one of the privileged few who enjoy Sydney’s waterways on your own boat. In my humble opinion, the finest of Sydney’s waterways are in and around the Pittwater/Hawkesbury region, and the best marina in that location is undoubtedly D’ALBORA Marinas Akuna Bay. There are a number of reasons beyond the idyllic location that made Akuna Bay my first choice.”
