Port Kembla provides businesses based in Wollongong with access to worldwide markets and is situated just five kilometres south of the Wollongong CBD.
Our port is NSW’s largest motor vehicle port and grain export hub. It operates across two precincts, the inner harbour and the outer harbour.
It includes six major independently operated terminals; 18 import/export berths; two bulk liquid berths; 3,410 metres of quay line; 186ha of land; 3.5 kilometres of road network and 29 kilometres of rail network.
Port Kembla is the first NSW approved liquified natural gas import terminal being developed by AIE. This terminal will provide a more reliable gas supply to households and businesses, supplying up to 7o per cent of NSW’s gas needs and helping drive down prices for consumers state-wide.
Access to this reliable energy resource has been welcomed by the many Advanced Manufacturing businesses that call Wollongong and NSW home.
“We are located close to a deep water port and to Southeast Asia, which is a huge and growing market.”
