Port Information

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.

The Dock gate is only operated once per day, on the tide with High Water nearest to noon (local time).  Any vessel or craft wishing to enter the dock from the River on night-time tides must give 48 hours’ notice to the Port Office or Harbour Master.
