New Tasmanian Cruise Ship Terminal

Posted March 19th, 2012

Development approval has been granted for the redevelopment of the Macquarie Wharf no. 2 Shed into a dedicated cruise ship terminal in Tasmania's capital city, Hobart.

Seven million dollars has been set aside for the transformation, with architectural firm Circa Morris-Nunn Walker selected to design a modern terminal which retains the historic foundations of the original wharf shed.

It is expected that the refurbishment will kick off in May and will be completed by the second half of the 2012-13 cruise ship season.

In other construction news, Geelong, Victoria has announced plans to construct a new pier along its foreshore, as well as to invest in more infrastructure to facilitate future cruise calls.
