Moreton Bay Regional Council provides opportunities for commercial boats or vessels to land at specific jetties across the region.
These activities are regulated to ensure they are carried out safely and to prevent nuisances to the surrounding jetty users.
Permits are not required for recreational users of Council controlled landings, jetties, and ramps. However time limits apply.
Commercial and recreational users are not permitted to moor at Council controlled jetties. Council no longer accepts mooring applications from commercial operators. Requests for mooring along the coastline or in waterways in the region such as Beachmere, Bribie passage or Caboolture/Pine river should be directed to Maritime Safety Queensland.
You will need to submit an application for approval a minimum of eight weeks before you wish to land a vessel. This allows time to review your submission, request further information, conduct a final assessment and make a decision.
The storage, decanting or refuelling of a vessel on local government owned or controlled landings, jetties or ramps is not permitted. All refuelling over water shall be approved and licensed by the Port of Brisbane Corporation or any other relevant authority.
