Brisbane International Cruise Terminal

The $177 million Brisbane International Cruise Terminal will provide a dedicated cruise ship facility for mega cruise ships. The project will transform an underutilised and undeveloped land at Luggage Point, on the north side of the Brisbane River, into a thriving tourism hub. Once completed, Brisbane will be able to capture a share of the sizeable cruising industry, increase tourist numbers, create jobs and stimulating the economy.

The terminal will accommodate some of the world’s largest and most luxurious mega cruise ships, optimising passenger experience from 'kerb to cabin'. There will also be public open spaces, parking for cars and buses plus extensive landscaping across the site.

The Brisbane International Cruise Terminal supported almost 250 jobs a year over its two-year construction period. It is expected that approximately 49 operational jobs will be created on average each year.
