Community engagement

Our role as a port authority comes with a great responsibility to the local and wider communities of Mackay, Hay Point, Abbot Point (Bowen), and Weipa.

We respect the aspirations and concerns of our port communities and stakeholders. We have a range of forums in place to promote greater awareness of our activities and ensure stakeholders' interests are identified and considered in our decision-making.

We foster collaboration with stakeholders through our Community Reference Groups (CRGs), Port Advisory Groups, and Technical Advisory Consultative Committees, and participation in various community groups, discussing issues of mutual interest relating to port operations, development, and more.

Additionally, through ongoing engagement with local Traditional Owners and our Reconciliation Action Plan, we seek to promote reconciliation and deliver positive outcomes for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities within our port areas.

We keep our port communities and other key stakeholders informed of our projects, milestones, and general activities. Each year we obtain feedback on our performance through a stakeholder survey.

We also welcome enquiries and feedback via our Communications team.
