I am after information about private jetties. Queensland,

Customer Question

My name is ***** ***** I am after information about private jetties.
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: Queensland, Russell Island (part of Moreton Bay)
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: We purchase a property with a boat ramp and private jetty sold to us by Ray White. I wish to find out the nature of our jetty if it is as advertised a private jetty or have we in fact purchased a public one
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: We are on Canaipa Passage on Russell Island

The guy who owned the property we purchased build the jetty and the boat ramp.
Wanted to know what legislation covers this. It may be part of Gold Coast recreation and parks or something like that.

What did it say on the contract of sale?
Surely it disclosed if the boat ramp / jetty was indeed private?
Do you have the contract still?
