Port Botany is Australia’s premium port and home to the state’s largest container facility. It is New South Wales’ primary bulk liquid and gas port with the largest dedicated common user facility of this type in Australia. Join us for this special behind the scenes tour to get a first-hand look at the operations of the port.
This unique experience will allow you to see one of Australia’s busiest container ports and get up-close to the giant ships as they load and unload their valuable cargo. You will be joined by industry experts who will act as your guide as you travel around port facilities, and share insights, on the port and cargo operations. All of us rely on containers to supply everyday items, like appliances, furniture, clothes, whitegoods and food. Australian products such as wine, farm produce, manufactured goods, wool, cotton and other items are loaded into containers and exported to overseas markets.
Container shipping connects New South Wales with the rest of the world and keeps the New South Wales economy functioning. The tour will commence with a short overview presentation and (off-site) briefing. Light refreshments will be served before you transit to the port precinct where you will get a chance to drive through one of Port Botany’s operational container terminals.
Numbers are limited so book now to reserve your place.
