Coochiemudlo Island: Improved Ferry Terminal Facilities

Residents and visitors to Coochiemudlo Island over the Easter break will benefit from new and improved ferry terminal facilities following the completion of the new Coochiemudlo terminal and a revamp of the Victoria Point ferry terminal.

Minister for Main Roads, Roads Safety and Ports, Mark Bailey said the Queensland Government had worked closely with the Redland City Council and the local community to deliver the jointly-funded $6.9 million facilities.

The new Coochiemudlo Island facilities were shaped by the community for the community. We received feedback from more than 200 Coochiemudlo Island residents during the early design phase for the new terminal and many of their suggestions were incorporated into the final design,” Mr Bailey said.

“The completion of the new $4.2 million terminal couldn’t have come at a better time with the busy Easter break upon us. Visitors to the island will be able to enjoy these new facilities, including the new jetty and pontoon.”

The work also included channel dredging and the disposal of the old Coochiemudlo jetty, first constructed in 1971.

Mr Bailey said the dredging works and jetties formed one of the biggest infrastructure projects the Redlands had ever seen.
