More information on Boodarie SIA is available below
The Boodarie SIA is situated 4km west of the South Hedland town-site and approximately 12km south of the Port Hedland town-site in Western Australia.
Port Hedland is located approximately 1,650km north of Perth.
The majority of the Boodarie SIA is Crown land.
When land in the Boodarie core is required by proponents, it will be transferred to DevelopmentWA in freehold ownership and leased to proponents.
The Boodarie SIA is located within the boundaries of the Town of Port Hedland.
Under the Town of Port Hedland Town Planning Scheme No. 5, the Boodarie core is zoned ‘Strategic Industry’ permitting the development of heavy/strategic industries.
A Structure Plan is available, providing a planning framework to guide coordinated development of the Boodarie Strategic Industrial Area and future planning approvals in order to optimise capacity for strategic industrial use.
A 2 - 3km ‘Special Control Area’ surrounds the Boodarie core, acting as a buffer to ensure incompatible land uses do not hinder the development of heavy industries in the estate.
Confirming the Boodarie SIA buffer is adequate for planned uses, the Boodarie SIA Concept Plan for Quantitative Risk Assessment investigated the impact risks associated with land uses at full capacity within their plant boundaries.
A Traffic Report has been completed and informs the structure plan. Among other outcomes the report includes transport modelling to 2031 and takes into account the development of the area through this period.
To inform the design and operation of the Boodarie SIA from an economic, environmental and community perspective an Industrial Ecology Strategy has been developed. The document outlines the industrial ecology opportunities for the Boodarie SIA, and its implications for the BSIA Concept Plan.
An Industrial Ecology Strategy has been undertaken as part of the Development Plan. This strategy provides a vision for the Boodarie SIA to become a sustainable industrial estate by encouraging the co-location of industries to create synergies such as the re-use of products or by-products.
Flora and fauna investigations have been undertaken over the Boodarie SIA, with results of these investigations supporting development of the site.
A District Water Management Strategy has also been completed to determine the extent, depth and velocity of fresh water flooding and inundation during large storms and cyclonic events.
Further reports informing environmental components of the Structure Plan include:
The Boodarie SIA Geotechnical Report
The Boodarie SIA Flora and Fauna Assessment
The Boodarie SIA Groundwater Monitoring
The Turner River Flood Study
The Boodarie SIA Environmental Noise Assessment
The Boodarie SIA Air Quality Assessment

The Boodarie SIA is largely undeveloped and unserviced, although a number of regional services, including the APA Group gas pipeline, North-West Coastal Highway, Water Corporation infrastructure and numerous power-lines traverse the estate.
Proponents requiring services will most likely be required to establish those services on-site or extend service infrastructure to the estate.
The State also encourages the establishment of independent service providers within the estate.
The Native Title claimants over the Boodarie SIA are the Kariyarra people.
Currently, 200ha within the Boodarie core is not subject to Native Title.
An Aboriginal Heritage Report has been completed for the Boodarie SIA and a number of sites have been identified.
All ground disturbing activities within the Boodarie SIA likely to disturb an aboriginal heritage site are subject to the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 (WA).
There are currently no known European heritage sites within the Boodarie SIA.
