Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and the third most populous city in Australia. The city is situated between Moreton Bay and the Great Dividing Range in south-east Queensland.
The Port of Brisbane is located at the mouth of the Brisbane River and is Queensland’s largest general cargo port and Australia’s fastest growing container port. Each year the Port of Brisbane contributes $770 million to the Queensland economy with over 2,600 ships and 28 million tonnes of cargo passing through the port.
Brisbane is an important economic hub due to its proximity to Asian and regional markets. The Port of Brisbane is Australia’s leading beef and cotton port, handling about 50% of national exports. Trade is facilitated by the port’s extensive transport and logistic networks, and the availability of warehousing and storage facilities. Future expansion plans, including a sand extraction project, are underway to ensure sustained efficiency.
The port also services many cruise liners every year with the majority docking at the Cruise Terminal Portside Wharf, on the north side of the Brisbane River, or the Sugar Wharf, located on the south side of the river.
