The Port of Newcastle is one of Australia's most diverse regional ports and one of the world's largest coal export ports. With about 2,000 ship visits a year, the port provides major economic benefit to the city, the region and the State of NSW. Infrastructure within the port can handle all types of cargo including dry bulk, bulk liquids, break bulk, project, passenger and containers.
The Port of Newcastle is a critical supply chain interface for the movement of cargo and includes 21 operational berths, 12 of which are allocated to handling a range of cargoes and nine dedicated to the handling of coal.
