Project Background

Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) is proposing to develop a new $100 million cruise facility for Brisbane and South-east Queensland at the mouth of the Brisbane River. The proposed facility will be able to cater to cruise vessels of all sizes and will also enable mega ships—vessels longer than 270m—to utilise Brisbane as a base port, transforming the city into a major cruise destination. The new facility will grow the number of international and domestic cruise visitors to Brisbane, significantly boosting the local and state economies and providing the cruise industry with a dedicated facility.

PBPL has been granted Stage 2A approval from the Queensland Government to progress the proposal under the Market Lead Proposal (MLP) Framework to complete Stage 2B. During Stage 2B of the Government’s MLP process, PBPL will undertake further planning and technical investigations, progress design and engineering work and liaise closely with site neighbours and other key stakeholders to lodge the Stage 2B submission for approval.

Overall project scope includes:

Early works, Surcharge & earthworks, Marine berth, Terminal building, Civil works (carparks, access roads and services) and environmental control processes.

These various project elements include:
  • Planning approvals
  • Environmental Approvals
  • Cultural Heritage Investigations
  • Site Investigations and testing
  • Geo-technical testing and design
  • Preliminary design of earthworks, civil and services, terminal building and marine berth (wharf)
  • Detailed discussions with stakeholders including QLD Government Dept, AFP, Customs and Cruise Ship Operators
