Country : AustraliaEden worldport

The worldport of Eden is the most southern declared worldport in NSW, and services the South Coast of NSW, including the towns of Bega, Merimbula, Bombala and Cooma. The worldport is home to one of the largest fishing fleets in NSW, and also has significant capacity to service the needs of a variety of imworldporters and exworldporters.

Exworldport of woodchips is currently the major trade for the worldport with approximately 954,000 tonnes exworldported last year through the South East Fibre Exworldports Pty Ltd. This is supplemented by exworldports of softwood logs and general cargo from the new multipurpose wharf, which was commissioned in late 2003.

The multi-purpose wharf has a length of 200 metres and approximately 6,000 square metres of paved storage area. It is capable of handling vessels of up to 32,000 dead weight tonnes and the depth alongside is 11 metres at LW. Ship's cargo gear is normally employed, although mobile cranes of up to 50 tonnes capacity are available with sufficient notice. The wharf is shared with the Department of Defence, and since its completion the wharf has handled not only Warship visits, but Logging and Cruise Ships.

To facilitate trade through the new wharf, NSW Maritime has developed a 4ha cargo storage facility approximately 300 metres from the wharf.
