Portside Wharf Cruise Terminal at Brisbane, Australia Brisbane, Gateway to the Sunshine and Gold Coasts
Brisbane, on the eastern seaboard of Australia around 600 miles north of Sydney, is the continent’s third largest city with over 1.5 residents.
The city originally started out as a penal colony. In the mid 1820s a convict settlement was relocated inland from Redcliffe to a patch of ground on the Brisbane river - this area of land is now home to the central business district. The opening tally of convicts was just 45 men and 2 women. In the late 1830s the area’s suitability for farming, fishing and timber felling led to the region being opened for settlement by free men. In 1859 following Queen Victoria’s Queensland Proclamation, which declared Queensland a separate colony to New South Wales, Brisbane was picked as the colony’s capital. This led to an upswing in commerce, and by the end of the century Brisbane was the principal center of industry in the area.
In the 20th century Brisbane grew into a large urban conurbation as suburbs of low density housing spread over a large area.
Today Brisbane ranks as one of Australia's most prestigious cities. It is welcoming to incomers, who hope to try out the continent’s 'New World' city, popular with tourists, coming to enjoy the many sights, and vital to numerous companies, wanting to be part of an important mining industry hub.by segway Stockholm
Cruise Ship Terminals
Cruise ships dock at 2 locations, Portside Wharf, a homeport terminal at Hamilton near the city center, and the Port of Brisbane's Multi User Terminal, a day call facility at Fisherman Island 15 miles east of the city center.
Portside Wharf is a stylish development encompassing bars, residential housing, shopping and plaza. The river frontage of the complex serves as a state-of-the art cruise terminal. Facilities available include check-in desks, security, baggage handling, quarantine, immigration and cash machine. Portside Wharf can berth just one ship of up to 270 meters in length. Downstream, the 50m high Brisbane Gateway Bridge imposes restrictions on the size of vessel that can use the terminal.
Port Of Brisbane Multi User Terminal
Day call cruise ships berth at the Freight Terminal beside the Grain pier at the Port Of Brisbane on Moreton Bay. The facility is also capable of handling large ships, up to 350m in length. There are no public transport services linking the terminal to Brisbane, so cruise passengers have to use buses organized by the shipping agent.
Cruises From Brisbane
A wide range of cruise vacations are on offer with durations of 7, 14 nights or even longer. Sail northeast to the sunny New Caledonia and Vanuatu islands to relax on a warm beach, or travel north to the picture-perfect Whitsundays to snorkel in crystal clear waters teaming with marine life. Longer cruises are also available, such as to exotic Papua New Guinea, and the epic circumnavigation of New Zealand.
