Cairns Marine Precinct
The Cairns Marine Precinct (CMP) at the Port of Cairns is an industrial area in Portsmith which accommodates a world-class marine services industry.
The CMP is of major economic importance to Far North Queensland and its growth is key to the diversification of the region.
The Project involves a $30 million investment by the Queensland Government to fund new infrastructure in the CMP, including two wharves to be located in Smith’s Creek and at Commercial Fisherman’s Base No 2, and services upgrades to improve capability.
The funding is also supporting a Business Case to identify how to build on this initial investment and grow the CMP as a centre for vessel repair work.
