Inner city residential expansion and the desire to improve current marine facilities, both environmentally and structurally, led the Port of Townsville to embark on the concept of a new marine precinct.

The precinct, which was opened in 2011, features a marina at the mouth of Townsville's Ross River and will consolidates a large portion of the city’s marine industry into one central location. It provides modern facilities to support boat building and maintenance including berths for various vessels, refuelling facilities, commercial and recreational businesses and cold storage and distribution facilities for the seafood industry.
