Port of Bundaberg Maintenance Dredging

Port of Bundaberg


We undertake annual maintenance dredging, and occasional emergency dredging in the Burnett River, to maintain port depths for commercial shipping within the Port of Bundaberg. We are committed to undertaking dredging requirements in accordance with our dredging permits and Long-Term Management and Monitoring Plan (LTMMP) for Maintenance Dredging and Disposal, Port of Bundaberg 2012–2022 (Worley Parsons, 2010).

Under the LTMMP, GPC undertakes regular environmental monitoring including:

Even though the Port of Bundaberg is not a Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area port, we are preparing to transition the current 10-year LTMMP to a Long-term Maintenance Dredging Management Plan in line with the Maintenance Dredging Strategy framework upon its expiry in 2022.
