Portside Wharf - Brisbane's New Cruise Ship Terminal

Portside is in it's final stages of construction and will be Queensland's first cruse ship terminal and urban village. *my spelling...

Terminal web site Here


Portside Wharf on the waterfront at Hamilton. Brisbane's first, truly international address. Exclusive riverfront residences, European inspired plaza, fresh produce markets and restaurants. All at an exciting world cruise ship anchorage. It’s the cosmopolitan heartbeat of a new world city on the rise.

At the moment the cruise ships dock at the Port of Brisbane, which is a container port. It means that the passengers get off the ship and they're left standing on a wharf with nothing around them. The idea with Portside Wharf is to build a proper cruise ship terminal and a lively area around the dock.

If the river is broad and deep enough it is not a hurdle.

Edit: I have found the exact location in Google Earth. The river is broad enough for any current cruise ship there.

Yeah its at the mouth of the river so it is very wide! There is even a development next to Portside called Northshore Harbour...so in many ways it is big enough to be a harbour, but its still a river...big one though.
