The Port of Gladstone
The Port of Gladstone is Queensland’s largest trading port with a scheduled trade throughput for 2017/18 of 125 million tonnes.
The magnificent deep water harbour currently has 20 berths at five wharf centres spread over 30km.
Since 1992, a 50 Year Strategic Planning process has guided $3.5 billion of infrastructure development within the Port of Gladstone, facilitating trade growth from 30Mt per annum to 125Mt per annum.
Future expansions to facilitate 300Mt per annum of trade are contained with the 50-year plan.
The majority of planned port development is in the Western Basin of the Port and is mandated under a 30 year Western Basin Master Plan adopted by the Queensland Government in 2010, under Section 10(2) of the State Development and Public Works Organisation Act 1971.
Western Basin planned port facilities are designed to cater for the continued growth of manufacturing activities in the Gladstone State Development Area.
