 FLPE  Fishermans Landing Port Expansion
(Gladstone Ports Corporation)

The Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) proposes to reclaim over 150 ha of land extending northwards from the existing Fisherman’s Landing Port facility, 10 kilometres north of Gladstone City. The area is currently below the high water mark in Gladstone Harbour and is regarded as unallocated state land. The existing Fisherman’s Landing Port Facility accommodates a multi-user Bulk Liquids Wharf, Cement Australia’s cement and clinker wharf, RTA Yarwun’s wharf and Orica Australia’s bulk liquid ammonia tank.

The reclaimed land would enable an additional six (6) wharves to be built alongside the existing facility to support future demand for transport, storage and loading and unloading facilities. It is intended that development of the wharf facilities will serve future industries to be located within the Gladstone State Development Area (GSDA) and will be linked via the Materials Transport Corridor, however the proposed reclamation is not within the GSDA.
