Trinity Point, NSW, Australia - 17 May 2019 - April 18th was a significant milestone for Johnson Property Group and Managing Director, Keith Johnson. Mr. Johnson first began planning Trinity Point in 1999. His vision - a luxury resort destination/residential lakeside development. The development would place Lake Macquarie on the map as favorite spot for locals and travelers alike.

"It's been a long and challenging journey but worth it," shared Johnson. "The opening of the marina is a big step forward in the $388 million overall project."

Former Lake Macquarie Mayor and Local MP, Greg Piper attended the grand opening. Piper echoed the crowds' comments, "I have to say, everything out here is first class."

For those seeking best in class marina facilities, look no further than Trinity Point. The marina is a showcase of modern marina construction and environmental responsibility. It also exemplifies the live /play lifestyle younger generations find appealing.

Johnson hired, international marina builder, Bellingham Marine to help with detail design and construction. "It was critical we did the marina right," said Johnson. "It was a major key to what we aimed to achieve. It had to be something special."

"From an operational standpoint, boater experience is paramount," said John Spragg, Bellingham Marine President of Australasia & Middle East. "Give boaters a stress-free, enjoyable experience and your berths will quickly fill. Trinity's purpose designed wave attenuator is a big piece of that. It ensures a safe, tranquil harbour in all weather."

Sweeping lines, placid waters, terra-cotta coloured Unifloat concrete docks, stunning lights and architectural details set Trinity Point apart. There is more. "To be a high performing marina, you need more than aesthetics," said Spragg. "Marina layout, ease of access from the entrance to individual berths, ample power, and amenities on the docks are the things that will put Trinity Point Marina on top."
