Dunwich (Goompi) jetty—boating and fishing facility

Location: Harold Walker jetty, Dunwich (Goompi), North Stradbroke Island
Timing: Construction to commence early 2023
Status: Planning

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

In March 2021, the Queensland Government committed to funding a replacement facility for community use.

The feedback submissions received during the November to December 2021 community consultation have been reviewed and considered. From this, the project team has gained a greater understanding of the requirements of local users for a replacement facility.

Benefits

  • Improves safety
  • Contributes to economy
  • Accommodates family fishing separated from boating access
  • Caters for community boating including occasional charter boat use

Key features

Proposed concepts

Following review of the November/December community consultation, an updated concept has been developed to address the need for a combination of a fishing platform and a gangway access pontoon at the Dunwich (Goompi) Junner Street jetty site.

Updated Concept Multipurpose fishing platform and pontoon at Harold Walker jetty site.

The concept features construction of a new 10x4.5m fishing platform in the location of the existing jetty head, with the addition of a separate 12x4m pontoon (maximum allowable size for this location), being a single module with 2 piles and a 24m access gangway, which is required to achieve a 1:8 slope at low tides.

The fishing platform will include seating, a shaded area, and solar lighting.

Additional consultation period

An additional community consultation period was undertaken between Monday, 4 April to Friday, 6 May 2022 to seek feedback on the updated concept.

This feedback will now be reviewed and considered by the project team.
