I have a dock with a number of layers and quite a few items in each layer - I'd like to copy it to my new Mac instead of having to re-create it and all settings.

Are there some settings files I can copy over?

Yes, you can copy the individual dock files from ~/Library/Preferences/DragThing/Docks in your user's home folder, and then double-click them on the new computer to open them. Or copy the " file which contains all the preferences.
