ABC Boat Licence Venue - Cammeray

One of our most popular venues to book thanks to its proximity to Sydney's more affluent suburbs, Cammeray is located in the Lower North Shore of Sydney, and is a convenient drive for those above the Harbour Bridge.

It's only 15 minutes drive from Chatswood, Mosman, and Lane Cove, or 30 minutes from Epping, Manly, and St Ives.

During the course you'll get to take in the views of Middle Harbour while completing your General Boat Licence Course, or Boat & Jet Ski/PWC Licence Course.

Hundreds of luxury yachts line the waters as we drive out past the Northbridge Golf Club and into the open spaces around Castlecrag and Seaforth.

Though popular, these are some of the best waterways that Sydney has to offer!

These waterways were featured on Channel 7's Sydney Weekender!

We'll start your Australian Boating College Sydney course at Tunks Park Boat Ramp, which is past the grassy ovals at the Tunks Park Sports Field.


Tunks Park Boat Ramp,
Brothers Avenue,
Northbridge, NSW 2062


Parking your car at this venue is free.

The car park may be busy on Saturdays due to school sport, so leave some extra time to park up the hill on Lower Cliff Avenue.

Don't park in the trailer spaces as you'll get a large fine from Willoughby Council!


Once you've booked your course and have paid, we'll send out an email and a SMS text message with the start location and time.

For Tunks Park, we meet on the wharf beside the boat ramp, which is located by the water through the car park.

When our Australian Boating College boats pull alongside and our Instructors greet you in uniform, you know you're in the right spot!


Public bathrooms are provided at Tunks Park, located in a red brick building a level 4-minute walk from the boat ramp.

There aren't any options to purchase food at this location.

Access to the multi-storey car park is from Palmer St, where parking is plentiful and free.

There is a small outdoor car park on Abbott St, but this fills up quickly and may not have space.


We'll meet you inside NORTHS, and your ABC Instructor will be waiting in the classroom.

Enquire at reception for directions to the classroom.


Being a Club means there are plenty of bathrooms.

There are also a few choices to purchase lunch, if you choose:

NORTHS Cafe offers small snacks and sandwiches, as well as hot drinks.

NORTHS Pantry offers sit-down meals and modern Australian dining.
