A ferry connecting Myola and Huskisson is set to become a more popular tourist route, with better infrastructure in the works.
Plans to improve the Myola waterfront will allow for elderly and disabled people to access the ferry, provide an amenities block and a car park with more spaces.
Shoalhaven City Council's plans to improve the area were partly bankrolled by a federal government grant of $462,500 on March 8.
Myola locals are cautiously optimistic about council's plans for the waterfront.
The ferry operates on weekends and school holidays, primarily for visitors - most residents opt to drive between towns.
"We know that the influx of tourists will only increase and forward planning like this will help mitigate some of the issues we see at Hyams Beach," Callala Progress Association president Trevor Smith said.
"The locals at Myola are looking at this carefully. They know that this is needed but want adequate community consultation and a sensible design. They would like traffic calming provisions considered in the design, especially in the village area."
Mr Smith said the broader community in Callala was very happy with the project costing $925,000.
"It is much-needed, especially the toilet and upgrades for the Husky Ferry landing area," he said.
"A big bonus are the accessibility provisions for parking, ferry access and toilets.
"Council is mindful to minimise the impact on existing trees, which they feel they can do."
Council has indicated that there will be a 12-month consultation and design period.
The project aims to attract more tourists to the area, as council continues to invest in its 'Round the Bay' path, and improve access and amenity to the area.
