Kooragang Service Centre
Located at the corner of Cormorant Road and Egret Street, the Kooragang Service Centre is a unique estate with main road exposure with 30,000 vehicles passing each day.
The site is conveniently located in the heart of Kooragang Island, less than 15 minutes from the Newcastle CBD and Newcastle Airport. It has direct access to the Port of Newcastle and within easy reach of key industries including Cargill Seed, Boral Cement, Port Waratah Coal, NCIG, Incitec, BOC gases, Orica and many more quality businesses.
Anchored by a 24 hrs Shell/Coles Service Station, Coolabah Restaurant and Bay Wash Car Wash, the site is now offering over 14,000 sqm of quality industrial facilities in flexible configurations that offer an ideal location for a wide range of industries, including wholesale, manufacturing, storage, tyres, mechanical servicing and more. It is also particularly attractive for 24 hour industrial, hazardous and port related operations.
Another major advantage of the Kooragang Service Centre is that it offers safe and secure premises that are not tucked away in the back of an Industrial estate.
Viva Energy Australia (“Viva Energy”), the exclusive licensee to the Shell brand in Australia, has told Hunter Business Review the opening of the first stage of the Kooragang Service Centre has been a success. Viva Energy’s Retail Business Manager, Andrew Davis, said Viva Energy was extremely pleased with the development’s progress.
“The first stage of the new Kooragang Service Centre has been a major win for motorists, offering the only fuel stop between Williamtown and Mayfield West,” said Andrew.
“At nearly 9000 sqm it’s three times the size of an average suburban site and was designed to be a Shell Coles Express flagship site between the Sydney and Brisbane market,” he said.
“The $6.9 million site opened in December 2015 and generated in excess of 36 local jobs during its construction. Stage Two site of the project will generate a further 14 local jobs during construction with development of a carwash.”
In addition to the 12 standard filling stations for everyday motorists, the site features a dedicated diesel forecourt with four truck filling positions fitted with ultra-high flow pumps. AdBlue is separately available at the pump. To accommodate trucking customers, the canopy height is 5 m and the food offer includes a mix of traditional and healthy option retail outlets.
“Viva Energy is focused on developing quality sites throughout NSW that service our customers, support our competitive Shell fuel card offer and underpin the sale of our fuels,” said Andrew.
Viva Energy was launched following the purchase of the Shell Australia downstream business (excluding Aviation). It comprises the Geelong refinery, a 920+ site-retail network and a bulk fuels, bitumen, marine, chemicals and lubricants business supported by more than 20 terminals across the country.

Integrated into the Shell / Coles Express service station development, the new Coolabah Tree Café is positioned between the fast food and restaurant alternatives with good, tasty, healthy, fresh and affordable food offerings. It provides a much needed eating option for local residents, local workers and passing traffic from 6 am to 9 pm, seven days a week.
Coolabah Tree Cafes began in 2001, initially in shopping centre foodcourts then expanding to roadhouse/ service station outlets on some of Australia's busiest highways. They have been honoured as the 2011 annual winner for the Best Retail, Wholesale and Distribution business operating on the Gold Coast, and have been a monthly winner of this prestigious award in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.
The new Kooragang facility marks another stage in the evolution of Coolabah Tree Cafes with the first drive through, providing the option of grabbing their coffee/meal without having to get out of the car. It also offers local business catering and delivery options as well as online ordering.
The franchisees at Kooragang, Jimmy and Sandy, collectively have over 40 yrs running their own business and are keen to grow the business by service a quality eating option to the local community.
Currently under construction as Stage 2 of the Kooragang Service Centre, the Bay Wash car wash will be a state-of-the-art four bay facility offering modern vehicle washing facilities on a 24 hr basis.
Bay Wash will use recycled water and offer automatic or manual car washing with the options of pressure wash, brush wash or both.
The car wash will also be easily accessible, with entry via Egret Street or the adjacent service station complex.
The Bay Wash car wash is expected to be complete by September 2016.
