NQBP is implementing measures to respond to the impact of COVID-19 on our employees, our communities, our operations, our port users and our customers.
Health and safety is our number one priority.
We also recognise that our ports are critical to around 27,000 miners, farmers and transport providers and NQBP is balancing our number one priority with the criticality of our ports.
Across all ports we’re maintaining our service delivery, including: marine pilotage; first-strike oil spill response; security; lines handling; and critical maintenance and breakdown services.
A range of new control measures and changed work practices have been implemented. These measures are consistent with advice of Australian Government Department of Health, Queensland Health, Australian Border Force and Marine Safety Queensland.

NQBP’s emergency management team is actively monitoring and managing the COVID-19 situation, including closely following the latest Australian Government and Queensland Government COVID-19 directives and liaising with the Mackay Public Health Unit and local Police.
Recently, this advice included that all skate parks, outdoor gyms and playgrounds across the region, including Mulherin Park, be closed until further notice.
We are encouraging people to follow the measures and restrictions in place at our public spaces including North Wall beach, Mount Bassett look out, Southern Breakwater and Kommo Toera trail and have erected a VMS sign at the breakwater entrance encouraging social distancing.
If a member of the public is aware of a potential breach of self-isolation, they can report them through the Policelink app or contact Policelink on 131 444 for more important matters.
NQBP have CCTV cameras in place to monitor security and encourage safe behaviours and, if necessary, report unsafe behaviours to the Police.
To report a hoon, contact the Queensland Police Service.
You can contact us via your regular NQBP contact person, via the details below on via our contacts page.
