Darwin is the capital city of the Northern Territory and is home to approximately 118,000 people. Located on the Timor Sea, the city overlooks the water, flanked by Frances Bay to the east and Cullen Bay to the west. Darwin is also strategically positioned as an access point to South East Asia, playing an important role in Australia’s trade and tourism industries.
The Port of Darwin is located on the southern shores of the Beagle Gulf and covers approximately 1,000 square kilometres of open water. The Port is Australia’s most northern natural deep-water harbour. Known most widely for the export of live cattle, the Port of Darwin is fast becoming the region’s primary service and supply base for offshore and onshore oil and gas projects. The Port also services dry and liquid bulk, breakbulk, cruise ships and naval vessels, amongst others.
The AustralAsia Rail Link from Adelaide to Darwin terminates at the Port of Darwin’s East Arm Wharf, allowing Australia’s bulk mineral exports to easily reach markets in Asia and beyond. The Port also services road train deliveries with the road dump station feeding directly to a travelling gantry shiploader at a capacity of 2000tph.
The team at ISS Darwin has specialised knowledge of the local area and is committed to providing excellent service to their Principals.
