Our Safety

Our top priority is and will always be safety.

We prioritise the health, safety and welfare of our employees, contractors, visitors, and customers. We are also committed to a high quality of service that provides our customers with an efficient, reliable, and safe experience.

Our Environment

We genuinely care about the environment and are dedicated to preserving it through resource efficiency, waste reduction, and environmental impact reduction, all while promoting a culture of sustainability. We are also committed to assisting our local community in their efforts to protect our local wildlife and reduce environmental impacts in our region.

From assisting local volunteers to assisting the travel of sick and injured wildlife to assisting the Magnetic Island Network for Turtles and the Magnetic Island Koala Hospital. We are also a proud member of Plastic Free Townsville and are constantly working to reduce our paper consumption within our operations through functional technology solutions.

Supporting the Community

Our engagement and support for the communities where we operate takes the approach of a bespoke local content plan to capture the needs of our community and empower our teams on the ground.

Local community support primarily takes the form of directly creating local jobs and economic opportunities through us or our suppliers, as well as charitable donations, sponsorship, and the provision of in-kind services to enable our communities to thrive. SeaLink proudly supports the Annual SeaLink Magnetic Island Race Week an iconic destination event for Townsville, North Queensland and the event generates over $1 Million in revenue for the local economy each year.
