Completed in mid-2020, the Brisbane International Cruise Terminal (BICT) is South East Queensland’s first dedicated cruise facility and is now firmly established as Brisbane’s new home for cruising.
The 208m wharf was built to accommodate the largest cruise ships in the world. Passengers can safely travel between their vessel and the terminal building via one of two passenger boarding bridges and the 270m elevated walkway.
The terminal building is set over two storeys, with an undercover plaza area and outdoor waterfront promenade. It also offers approximately 900 onsite paid car parking spaces for passengers.
The terminal incorporated sustainable design principles (developed collaboratively with the lead designer, Arup and architect, Arkhefield) that embrace Brisbane’s subtropical climate and lifestyle and improve sustainability.
Long-term, the BICT will help grow Brisbane and Queensland’s cruise tourism industry, supporting jobs, economic growth and attracting more visitors to south-east Queensland. Within 20 years, it will potentially triple Brisbane’s cruise industry to:
• support 3,750 jobs
• bring over 760,000 visitors annually
• contribute $1.3 billion in net expenditure into the Brisbane economy
