Dunwich (Goompi) jetty—boating and fishing facility

Location: Harold Walker jetty, Dunwich (Goompi), North Stradbroke Island
Timing: Construction to commence early 2024
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 2 rounds of community consultation in 2021 and 2022 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.


  • 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 community consultation, an updated concept was 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. 

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.
