Mooring Services

Gladstone Ports Corporation's (GPC) Gladstone Marina offers the boating fraternity a first-class base from which to cruise the Capricorn and Bunker Reef Groups of the Great Barrier Reef waters.

Situated Lat 23° 50', Long 151° 15', the Gladstone Marina is a modern complex for yachting and boating activity. With 320 mooring berths and a combination of fixed wharf and pontoon moorings, the Gladstone Marina moorings can cater to private, charter and service vessels.

The floating marina system utilises concrete encased styrene pontoons and allows generous mooring and manoeuvring space with each pen area.

Investing in both the visiting and local boating community, GPC introduced four floating dry docks in November 2020. The new docks are available for boats up to three tonne – opening up the benefits of a marina to trailer boat owners.

The combination of the sheltered waters of Port Curtis, the marina basin, and marina pen design allow for safe mooring even during inclement weather.

Mooring at the Marina


Each berth has access to 240V power supply and fresh water. Other great facilities include shower and toilet blocks, telephones, free barbeques, playground equipment, landscaped gardens and walking tracks.

From 1 July 2012 any vessel utilisiting GPC’s Marina and Auckland Creek facilities will be required to supply a copy of their insurance policy to the Gladstone Marina office. This insurance must include Damage to other Vessels, Salvage and Environmental Damage Cover (including discharge of any fuels, lubricants etc). 

Transient vessels are also required to meet GPC’s compulsory insurance requirements. 

Vessels who do not have the appropriate insurance will not be permitted in the Gladstone Marina/Auckland Creek. 

Entrances to the Gladstone Harbour


There are three entrance channels, eliminating backtracking:

  • South — via the main shipping channels to Round Hill, Pancake Creek and southern ports

  • North — via the North Channel past South End Entrance to Reef Islands and Cape Capricorn

  • North-west — via the Narrows to Roslyn Bay, Keppel Islands and northwards — the Narrows Channel is navigable by working the tides to suit vessel drafts.
