In October 2017, Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) received government approval to build the Brisbane International Cruise Terminal at Luggage Point.
Once complete, the facility will be able to cater to cruise vessels of all sizes including mega cruise ships – vessels longer than 270 metres.
Globally, vessels are increasing in size and by 2020 it is estimated that around 60% of the cruise vessels calling in Australia will be mega cruise ships.
Currently, there is no dedicated cruise facility in south-east Queensland able to accommodate mega cruise ships – these vessels currently call at Brisbane’s main cargo port.
A dedicated cruise facility in Brisbane – the Brisbane International Cruise Terminal – will be designed to accommodate these mega cruise ships. It is the ‘missing link’ in Brisbane’s tourism infrastructure that is needed to ensure the city can attract and support the world’s largest cruise ships.
PBPL will keep the community updated as the project progresses.
