I read that a very long jetty would be suitable for the larger cruise ships and avoid the capital dredging?

  • Cruise ship owners want all their visits to be to our new cruise ship terminal.  Cruise companies – and passengers – rate Cairns as one of the best in the South Pacific – a so-called ‘marque’ port.
  • Why?  Because it is much lower cost than achoring offshore where their crew can’t come ashore; they can’t load local produce and passengers want to walk directly into our CBD.  First and foremost that’s what all their passengers want!
  • Anyway, the estimated costs for this mooted long jetty are huge.
