Porters Creek Wetlands’ Smith’s legacy

In 2018 when the first Central Coast Council was elected Mayor Jane Smith made the permanent protection of Porters Creek Wetlands covering over 700 hectares from Wyong to Warnervale one of her major goals.

She was successful and in 2022 the Wetlands were declared a specified wetland of international importance.

The Woolworths Distribution Centre is located in the Warnervale Industrial Park that was developed over twenty years ago and includes Sanitarium Health Foods’ Development and Innovation Centre and a number of major transport companies.

It is located adjacent to Warnervale Airport.

Both the industrial area and the airport are located at the northern entrance to the Central Coast at the intersection of the M1 Expressway and Sparkes Road.

The airport was established in 1973 and the industrial area in 2010 and comprises 44 hectares of land zoned E4 – General Industrial.

Both areas are surrounded by a sliver of bushland between the Expressway and separates the  industrial area from the airport that are part of the Porters Creek Wetlands.
