Dredging works and tide gauge pile installation were completed late October 2021, while fabrication of the fixed walkway and fishing platform continued during January. 

Member for Cook Cynthia Lui (pictured) was pleased with the state of works during a recent visit to the site, just 10 minutes northeast of Mossman. 

“It’s wonderful to see the progress – it’s has taken an enormous effort obtaining environmental approvals and getting the design locked in and no doubt it will be worth the wait,” Ms Lui said. 

“Nightworks are well underway, as crews lay the boat ramp planks during the lowest tides. We are well on our way to seeing the project delivered in June of this year.”
