Glasson Dock is a tidal port with an enclosed dock and an hydraulically operated ‘flap’ gate.
The Dock Gate at Glasson is operated to LIVERPOOL (Gladstone) Tide times, and generally opens 45 minutes before High Water, and is closed at High Water.
Between 1 April and 31 October, the gate is opened on all tides.
Between 1 November and 31 March (excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day) the gate is only operated once per day, on the tide with High Water nearest to noon. Any vessel or craft wishing to enter the dock from the River on night-time tides during these months must give at least 24 hours notice to the Port Office during normal working hours.
