Decking with a Difference – the Seaport Boardwalk. Launceston Tasmania

Located on the picturesque waterfront in Launceston, Tasmania, the stunning Seaport boardwalk. Spanning almost 350 metres and 6 metres wide, it’s a perfect compliment to the beautiful surrounds with an environmental difference.

Originally built in 2002 from Tasmanian Ironbark, it was within 10 years that the timber began to wear. Faced with increasing repair and maintenance costs, or the prospect of replacing the timbers, the Launceston City Council opted for a more sustainable, low maintenance and circular option – Replas recycled plastic Enduroplank.

Raj Pakiarajah, City of Launceston: ‘one of our main aims is to find out what is the suitable material for this boardwalk. We finally found out that recycled plastic is the product we wanted, and that the community wanted’.

Rolled out over three stages, Replas worked with the Launceston City Shire to deliver a hardwearing, long-lasting solution with Enduroplank decking. Featuring world leading technology including UV stabilisers, Enduroplank is mafe from a minimum 85% end of life plastic, is low maintenance and built to last for over 40 years – like all Replas products.

As part of the project, we were also able to take back the excess off cuts to reprocess and create additional Replas products, ensuring minimum wastage and delivering additional circular and environmental benefits.

6 years on the boardwalk looks as good as the day it was installed and continues to provide a safer more durable surface for the community and visitors alike.


Recycled plastic Enduroplank™ is ideal for a multitude of commercial applications. It is especially suitable for marine environments as salt water will not corrode the material, even when submerged. It will not split, rot, crack or ever need painting and will outlast wooden decking by many years.

Replas Environmental Statement

With plastic use on the rise, we need to create a sustainable community that reduces, re-uses and recycles plastics. At Replas, we see waste as a valuable resource. What is the environmental cost in not being involved in the circular economy? By re-thinking our industries selection and procurement to recycled plastic products, we can be the change.

Our Buy Back Offer for a Circular Solution

Plastic lasts forever. It’s a well-known part of the problem, but we can also make it of the solution. Being recyclable themselves, we can take old Replas products and turn them into new ones to last another 40 years.

That means, in the instance of warranty claims, replacement or products that have simply outlived their purpose, Replas can take the product back, reprocessing into material and giving them another life as new Replas products. A truly circular solution.
