A new floating walkway will be installed alongside the Half Tide boat ramp. NQBP is proud to help bring this community project to Hay Point.

The new facility will be for recreational vessels.

Installation works are expected to take four to five weeks and could require closure of the boat ramp for periods of time and some disruptions in the adjacent carpark.

NQBP has engaged contractor SMC Marine to complete these works.

We recognise this work may cause inconvenience and ask for your patience during this time.


Installation works are due to commence early May 2018.

Work will take place between 7am and 5pm Monday to Friday and 7am to 1pm on Saturday.

It is expected these works will be completed by June 2018.

NQBP thanks key stakeholders who helped to bring this much-anticipated project to life and the Hay Point community for their contribution up to this point.
