Cairns to benefit from new cruise terminal

Date Posted: 30 Nov 2009
Holidaymakers thinking of booking a family cruise in Australasia may be interested to learn that construction work is due to get underway on a new cruise ship terminal in Cairns.

An artist's impression of the terminal has been released ahead of building work beginning in the new year, Cairns.com.au reports.

As well as making the north-east Australian city more accessible to cruise enthusiasts, the terminal is expected to generate $30 million (£16.5 million) for the local economy each year.

"When the new terminal facilities are complete we will be welcoming visitors in style and encouraging them to spend a little more time and money onshore," premier of Queensland Anna Bligh told the website.

Developers have promised that the terminal will remain in keeping with Cairns' historical character, with Wharf Street's original tracks set to be retained.

The wharf building's mass timber frame will be conserved and made a feature.

Cairns Seaport is currently Australia's busiest seaport, accommodating more than 200 visits from domestic and international vessels each year.

This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest.

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
