About the port

Located in the capital of the State, the Port of Sydney is one of the most important and major ports in the South Pacific regions. It is managed by the Port Authority of New South Wales.

Handling

The Port has 11 berths which are equipped to handle dry bulk, general cargo, containers, liquid cargo, and cruise ships. It handles 60% (approx.) of the country’s container transport. In financial terms, annually, the Port handles international and domestic trade worth more than $ 60 billion.

History

The port’s history can be traced back to 1788, when it was used by Captain Arthur Phillip as a penal settlement. In 1811 the first harbour master was appointed to formally manage and control the port. With the formation of Maritime Services Board in 1936, the operations of the port were further streamlined, establishing the port as a growing centre for trade and commerce.

Importance

The Port of Sydney is one of the most largest ports in Australia and a major port in international shipping trade.
