Brisbane River marina fills ‘overnight’ gap

AUSTRALIA: A 42-berth marina where commercial and tourist boats can dock overnight on the Brisbane River will be built at Raptis Seafoods, Morningside near the Gateway Bridge. The marina is one of five projects that have been awarded a share in AU$15 million under round one of the Growing Future Tourism programme.

While the facility will not provide a tourist pick up and drop off point, the marina will give Brisbane’s marine tourism operators a place to anchor after a tough few years that included the 2022 floods and displacement due to waterfront developments across the city.
Queensland Government funding for the projects will leverage AU$66.6 million in private investment, supporting an estimated 313 jobs during planning and construction and 669 ongoing operational jobs.
The new marina is due for completion by April 2025, subject to development approvals. Other projects include a fixed 50m (164ft) jetty at Lindeman Island Resort, and a marine tourism hub at Flinders Street Wharves, Townsville, featuring marina berths and a floating bar/restaurant.
