Dudgeon Point Coal Terminals Project

The Port of Hay Point has continued to expand over the past 20 years. This growth is expected to continue to meet industry demand in the future and remain a fundamentally important part of the social and economic fabric of not only the Mackay region but Queensland more broadly.

NQBP holds around 1400 ha at Dudgeon Point, principally as freehold land. Around half of the site is zoned for port use and the remainder is being retained by NQBP for environmental or general buffer purposes. Dudgeon Point sits within the existing Port of Hay Point, approximately four kilometres north-west of the two existing coal terminals.

Coal export facilities may be required at Dudgeon Point in the future. NQBP intends to complete a port master planning exercise over the coming year to comply with the proposed Queensland Ports Strategy.

With appropriate environmental and social planning and approval conditions, any future expansion of Port of Hay Point can make a sustainable contribution to the economic growth and social well-being of Queensland.

 

Utah Development Company, with the support of State of Queensland built a new port at Hay Point as provided for in the Central Queensland Coal Associates Agreement Act 1968. The Port of Hay Point commenced operation on 20 October 1971 as a one-user facility owned and built solely for the use of Central Queensland Coal Associates and operated on site by Hay Point Services Pty Ltd.

Four years later in 1975, a second coal loading berth was opened and a Harbour Master and Pilot were appointed to Hay Point and an office at the port was opened. Residences for port personnel were completed the following year at Half Tide township and a launch crew was appointed and pilot vessel provided. At this time, the pilot vessels operated out of Louisa Creek.

In 1980/81, 81 vessels visited the port and 15,075,905 tonnes of coal was exported. Since this time, further expansions at the port have seen Hay Point grow to become one of the largest coal export ports in the world.
