Community Reference Groups

To promote information-sharing and consultation, we host community reference groups at the Ports of Mackay and Hay Point.

Running for more than 20 years, the Community Reference Groups (CRGs) provide a forum for NQBP and community representatives to discuss issues of mutual interest relating to port operations and development.

The CRGs are made up of representatives from local businesses, port industry, environment, Traditional Owner and recreational groups, and the general community.

Meetings are held three times a year at each location, with members invited to contribute to each agenda which typically includes discussions and presentations on trade performance, sustainability and environment activities, community involvement, and general business.
