Glebe Island and White Bay

Glebe Island and White Bay is a key facility in the NSW transport and logistics network. It is uniquely and ideally positioned within the Sydney metropolitan area for efficient transfer of cargo between land and sea.

Together, Glebe Island and White Bay are Sydney's principal centre for receiving, storing and distributing dry bulk goods.

Their 39.7 hectares comprise:

  • common user bulk dry cargo discharge facilities, equipped for self-discharging vessels using wharf manifold to pipelines, conveyors and adjacent storage silos plus
  • wharves with a combined total of 1,890m for general cargo and lay-up berths
  • the White Bay Cruise Terminal, opened in April 2013.

The White Bay facility can host two cruise ships at a time and on non-ship days the waterfront area adjacent to the terminal building is open to the public for walking and cycling.
