Brisbane International 
Cruise Terminal

The Brisbane International Cruise Terminal is a vital piece of Queensland’s transport and tourism infrastructure, accommodating the world’s largest cruise ships and growing visitors to South East Queensland.

Arkhefield working in collaboration with Arup for the detailed design of the wharf, terminal building, and landside civil works, challenging site and programme constraints were overcome to deliver a value for money solution that was instrumental in the proposal being accepted by the Queensland Government.

Combining a 9300sqm terminal building, a 270m long elevated walkway, a 200m long wharf, new riverfront open space, and extensive carparking facilities, the precinct creates a fitting new gateway for Brisbane’s visitors.

A dedicated, purpose-built cruise ship terminal will boost our international reputation as a global tourism destination of choice. It will serve as a catalyst to supercharge growth in our tourism sector and related industries and generate jobs now and into the future.
