Community

The Port of Brisbane’s Fisherman Island precinct adjoins the Brisbane bay side suburbs of Wynnum and Manly. Further along the Brisbane River, Port operations occur adjacent to the south side suburbs of Hemmant and the northern suburbs of Pinkenba and Hamilton.

However, the influence of our activities is as far-reaching as the Queensland hinterlands and northern New South Wales, where agricultural commodities are produced and transported to the Port of Brisbane for export.

The Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) is a proud supporter of innovative local environmental and community groups who are prepared to make a positive contribution to the local area.

Community Consultative Committee

Our Community Consultative Committee comprises representatives from conservation, business and community groups with an interest in PBPL's activities and its impact on neighbouring communities.

This committee provides a link to our stakeholders and local communities through whom we raise awareness about the port, its development and plans for the future. The committee meets quarterly.


Visitors Centre

The Port of Brisbane Visitors’ Centre, is located on the ground floor of the Port Office
and  provides an interactive educational experience including how the port works, where Australia exports goods to and which countries we import goods from. The Visitors Centre will also include interactive displays of the Port’s dedicated migratory shorebird roost.
