Soldiers Point Marina, in Port Stephens NSW, remains the only marina on Australia’s eastern seaboard with the prestigious international Level 4 ISO 14001 Clean Marinas Program status, following successful completion of the rigorous annual reaccreditation process.

The independently audited reaccreditation ensures that the 2013-2014 Australian Marina of the Year continues to maintain the world standard for marina environmental management processes and practices.
Level 4 builds on Levels 1 – 3 of the Clean Marinas program established in 2002 by the Marina Industries Association (MIA) with the objective of protecting the nation’s coastal and in-land waterways.
'We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously at Soldiers Point Marina and are thrilled to have achieved the seal of approval by the auditors,' said Marina Manager Darrell Barnett CMM.
'In September this year, Soldiers Point Marine Centre located within the Marina complex was the first independent workshop facility to be awarded the International Clean Marina Program Level 3 accreditation in Australia, an achievement we are very proud of,' said Mr Barnett.
