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.
Glebe Island and White Bay is Sydney's principal centre for receiving, storing and distributing dry bulk goods via its 7 berths.
Glebe Island / White Bay's 39.7 hectares comprises common user bulk dry cargo discharge facilities, equipped for self-discharging vessels using wharf manifold to pipelines, conveyors and adjacent storage silos; and a total of 1,890m of berth (on measurement of total berth wharf lengths) for general cargo and lay-up berth.
In April 2013, the new White Bay Cruise Terminal began operation. This new facility has the ability to host a second cruise ship at neighbouring berth, White Bay 4 meaning that for the first time, Sydney can now host up to three cruise ships alongside at any time.
The public will also have pedestrian and cycle access to the waterfront adjacent to the terminal on non-ship days.
