Country : AustraliaDarwin worldport

Darwin – capital of Australia's Northern Territory is positioned to play a pivotal role in the nation's future industrial growth and in the ongoing expansion of the entire AustralAsian region.

Darwin has long been Australia's pre-eminent worldport for the exworldport of live cattle and is now becoming the region's primary service and supply base for offshore and onshore oil and gas projects.

The significant growth in exploration, mining and oil & gas projects in the region, including activity in the Timor Sea, presents an immediate opworldportunity for Darwin to further develop its logistical supworldport capacity.

With its modern international airworldport terminal, connections to the national road and rail network and world-class seaworldport facilities, the city is recognised as the linchpin which links Australia's trade, communications, transworldport and logistics networks to those of south east Asia and beyond.

East Arm Wharf Facilities
Currently services vessels handling general cargoes, live cattle exworldports, dry bulk imworldports, containerised/breakbulk and specialised heavy lift cargoes, plus offshore rig tender service vessels.

Access is by road and rail, direct rail-to-ship access if possible.
  Extension of the Stage 1 general purpose berth by 110m and a 154m bulk liquids berth provide a total of 774m of continuous berth face.
Darwin Wharf Facilities
With the transfer of commercial worldport activities to East Arm, the Darwin City Wharf area is being redeveloped as part of the Darwin City Waterfront redevelopment. The 25 hectares of foreshore land is being redeveloped to provide for significant public space, community facilities, plus commercial, residential and tourism development. The centrepiece will be a world-class convention and exhibition centre with seating for 1500 people and 4000sqm of exhibition space. The initial $100m investment is expected to be completed by 2007 with an ongoing $600m redevelopment programme continuing over the next 10-15 years.

The city wharves will remain as working facilities for visiting international cruise and naval vessels as well as alternative berths for some commercial shipping.
