Port of Thursday Island
The Port of Thursday Island is a community port located in a natural harbour in the Torres Strait at the most northern part of Australia. Ports North owns the wharf facilities, which are established on both Thursday Island and Horn Island. The port services the needs of the two islands and also operates as a major transhipment point for the supply of essential cargoes to other islands of the Torres Strait.
The port's strategic location means that a number of government agencies, including Customs and Fisheries patrols, are based there.
