One of the most famous and sought-after yacht transport destinations on the Oceanian continent, Port of Brisbane, Australia offers ultra-modern, clean and sophisticated marina facilities in the all-tides, all-weather access Scarborough Boat Harbour. Located on Queensland’s eastern coast, at the mouth of Brisbane River which empties into Moreton Bay, Port of Brisbane is Australia’s third busiest port and Queensland’s largest multi-cargo port. Emerging as the main commercial centre in the early days of European settlement back in mid-19th century, Port of Brisbane witnessed two crucial phases of development during the 1960s ( the construction of two oil refineries in the area and the port’s first container terminal) and has since developed into one of the nation’s fastest growing container ports, with the Port of Brisbane Corporation currently also managing Scarborough Boat Harbour, featuring over 130 marina berths.
As a suburb of Brisbane, Queensland’s celebrated capital, Port of Brisbane offers an incredibly delectable slice of Queensland’s rich history, vast cultural heritage, finest scenery and marine paradise, as Queensland is home to the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef system and the only living structure visible from outer space.
