A week after weathering the impact of severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie, significant progress has been made on returning the critical northern ports of Abbot Point, Mackay and Hay Point to full operations.

Ports Minister Mark Bailey visited Port of Mackay today with Member for Mackay Julieanne Gilbert who thanks port works who had been working tirelessly across the three ports.

“But I am extremely impressed with the way NQBP has been working closely with port terminal operators, tenants and service providers to work towards the resumption of safe port operations.”
