The iconic Voyager Park at Huskisson is getting an $800,000 upgrade.

Shoalhaven City Council is undertaking construction works to upgrade the park facilities which overlook beautiful Jervis Bay.

The work includes completing the Anzac and Voyager Memorial, upgrading the existing play equipment and formalising the entrance to the park.

Works started early July and are expected to take approximately four months.  

The works have been identified as part of the Community Development Grants Program with funding provided by the Federal Government and Shoalhaven City Council.

Council started upgrading the park in 2014, but was in need of extra funds to complete the task, with Gilmore MP Ann Sudmalis securing $600,000 so council could finish off fencing, pathways, the war memorial and the road near the park.

The memorial was erected to mark the sinking of the HMAS Voyager, around 30 miles off Jervis Bay in February 1964, and the loss of 82 lives on board. It also honours the soldiers from the area who died in combat.

The memorial is used for Anzac Day, Remembrance Day and loss of Voyager ceremonies.

The Huskisson Anzac Day service is held in the park and always attracts big crowds.
