Scarborough Boat Harbour

Scarborough Boat Harbour is vibrant part of the Redcliffe Peninsula community. We want to better understand your ideas for the harbour to help guide future activities and community access.

Scarborough Boat Harbour is one of 8 state-owned and operated boat harbours on the Queensland coast. Hosting dry standings and wet berths, plus 2 public boat ramps (1 at each end of the harbour), the Scarborough Boat Harbour offers boating and cruising yacht facilities of particular significance for Australia's eastern seaboard and the whole of the southern Pacific Ocean.

The purpose of Scarborough Boat Harbour is to:

  • provide safe and efficient access and refuge for recreational and commercial vessels
  • promote activities that are commercially and environmentally sustainable, support the marine industry, and generate local employment and tourism.

Our vision for Scarborough Boat Harbour is continuing to provide safe and efficient access to Queensland waters, berthing for recreational and commercial vessels and to provide appropriate activities that will positively contribute to the sustainability of the harbour.

To support our vision, we want to better understand community ideas and knowledge to help guide future activities and community access.
