GC port pro­pos­als

Cruise Weekly - - News -

DE­TAILED pro­pos­als have been re­leased by the Queens­land Gov­ern­ment that put for­ward op­tions for a pos­si­ble new cruise ter­mi­nal in the Gold Coast district of Philip Park.

The Spit Mas­ter Plan cur­rently con­sists of a range of de­vel­op­ment plans that both in­clude and ex­clude the con­struc­tion of a cruise ter­mi­nal, with one op­tion fea­tur­ing a ship ter­mi­nal fa­cil­ity cater­ing for up to 2,500 pas­sen­gers, while an­other de­tails a plan for a port fa­cil­ity al­low­ing for larger ves­sels car­ry­ing up to 4,000 pas­sen­gers.

This lat­ter plan pro­motes more di­rect jetty ac­cess to en­able faster load­ing of bag­gage and pax.

The Queens­land Gov­ern­ment pre­vi­ously backed off plans to de­velop a cruise ter­mi­nal on the site in 2014 ( CW 26 Aug 2014) cit­ing it “would not al­low sta­te­owned land to be de­vel­oped into a cruise ter­mi­nal”.
