Step Forward For Port Hinchinbrook (One Mile Creek) Dredging


Council would like to advise the community that sediment testing is currently underway as part of the Port Hinchinbrook (One Mile Creek) dredging project.

This activity will focus on analysing the sediment composition, pollutant levels, and potential ecological impacts; and was undertaken in accordance with a permit specific to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The results obtained from the sediment testing will inform a dredging options report due to be finalised at the end of October. The report will inform the dredging process going forward.

As we await the completion of the report, we promise to keep you informed throughout the project. To ensure you are among the first to receive the updates, we invite you to register for Council’s e-newsletter by visiting

The Port Hinchinbrook (One Mile Creek) dredging project is funded with $1.5 million from the Australian Government.
