The berth is located on the eastern side of the inner harbour entrance. It measures148 metres long by 10 metres wide. It is designed to withstand significant seismic events and ensure ships are safe in our wind and wave conditions.
Through a multi-stage design process, LPC developed a cost-effective design for the new berth which minimised impacts on the environment. There were two components of construction – the wharf itself and landside works to support the wharf and provide land transport services for the cruise passengers. Landside works began in July 2018 and wharf construction in 2019.
