Port of Hay Point Lookout

Hay Point, Mackay Area

The Port of Hay Point, 30 kilometres south of Mackay, is one of the biggest and most efficient coal ports in the world. The Port Administration building features a public viewing gallery offering fantastic views of the two coal terminals.

From the viewing area you will see two separate coal terminals - the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal and the Hay Point Services Coal Terminal. The terminals are operated independently, each one comprises rail unloading equipment, stockpiles with stacking and reclaiming equipment, conveyors and ship loaders on off-shore wharves.

Together the two terminals serve the mines of Central Queensland. The mines are linked to the port terminals through an integrated rail-port network. Both terminals have purpose-built in-loading facilities, on-shore stockpile yards and off-shore wharves.

Loading takes place on a 24 hours per day, 365 days per year basis - over 5,000 ships have departed Dalrymple Bay since the terminal was opened in 1983 and over 7,300 ships from Hay Point since it's opening in 1970.
