Dunwich jetty—boating facilities

Location: Harold Walker Jetty, Dunwich, North Stradbroke Island
Timing: Construction to commence mid 2022
Status: Planning

We are replacing the existing jetty structure at Dunwich on North Stradbroke Island. The 35 year old jetty has been closed since June 2020 from corrosion issues.

In March 2021, the Queensland Government committed to funding a replacement facility at Dunwich with a total project budget of $750,000.

Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) is working with the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning. We have provided a response to the draft Gumpi master plan—the 3 proposed options are compatible with the Gumpi master planning process and its different possible outcomes.

Our project team is now seeking feedback on the 3 concepts for a replacement structure.


  • Improves safety
  • Contributes to economy

Key features

Proposed concepts

As part of the planning phase, 3 options have been identified for the replacement structure:

  • 2 options at the existing jetty
  • 1 option at a nearby alternate site.

Other alternate sites were investigated and considered not suitable.

Concept 1—Multipurpose pontoon at Harold Walker jetty site:

  • partially demolish existing jetty
  • replace with a multipurpose pontoon.

Concept 2—New fishing platform outer jetty head for Harold Walker jetty:

  • partially demolish existing jetty
  • construct a new (fishing platform only) jetty head
  • repair existing jetty stem.

Concept 3—New multipurpose pontoon:

  • located at the southern corner of the Sibelco sand mining lease reclamation area.

Consultation period

We invite local users of the facility and the wider community to provide written feedback on the initial concepts.

Consultation period: Monday, 15 November to Monday, 13 December 2021.
