Toondah Harbour

Key details

The Toondah Harbour Priority Development Area (PDA) aims to enable redevelopment to boost tourism, and create new business opportunities and jobs while supporting existing businesses. It will provide the local community with better services and facilities.

The Toondah Harbour PDA is located on the southern shores of Moreton Bay in Cleveland, approximately one kilometre from of the Cleveland CBD and 33 kilometres from of the Brisbane CBD.

The PDA covers 67 hectares, including 17.5 hectares over land and 49.5 hectares over water within Moreton Bay.

The PDA was declared on 21 June 2013, at the request of Redland City Council.

Draft Environmental Impact Statement – released for public consultation

The Walker Group Toondah Harbour redevelopment proposal was determined in 2018 by the Commonwealth Minister for Environment to be a controlled action under the provisions of the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. The redevelopment proposal is subject to assessment by environmental impact study (EIS), and this includes a period of public exhibition and invitation to comment.

The draft EIS is open for public consultation from 12 October 2022 to 6 December 2022.

The consultation is being led by Walker Group Holdings.

For details about community engagement activities and to submit your feedback on the draft EIS, or to read a digital copy of the statement, please visit Walker Group’s Toondah Harbour PDA project page.

A PDF version of the EIS can be viewed at the Toondah Harbour website.
