North Queensland Bulk Ports (NQBP) is a government owned company which owns and operates port facilities at Hay Point, Mackay, Abbot Point, Weipa and Maryborough. "NQBP ports handle bulk shipments of coal, bauxite, sand, sugar, grain, petroleum and general cargo. Coal is by far the main commodity handled, but each port and each commodity is important in its own right," the company states on its website.[1]

NQBP operates the Port of Hay Point, which is approximately 40 kilometres south of Mackay, and the Port of Abbot Point, which is located approximately 25 kilometres north of Bowen.
