Marine Industry Park

Northern Australia’s Marine Servicing Hub

The Marine Industry Park is strategically located on premium waterfront land at East Arm with connections to road, rail and sea transport and other supporting infrastructure. Located 16km by road from Darwin CBD and adjoining the entrance to East Arm Wharf, the Marine Industry Park offers opportunities to enhance support for the marine and offshore industries complementing services already available within the region.

Darwin’s Marine Industry Park will capitalise on:

  • existing infrastructure including common-use hardstand and all-tide Barge Ramp
  • Darwin’s strategic location in the Indo-Pacific region, eliminating significant vessel travel costs to alternate maintenance facilities located interstate and overseas
  • large parcels of strategic waterfront land
  • established sea, road and rail transport links
  • proximity to East Arm Wharf, Marine Supply Base and Darwin Business Park
  • clustering of marine related industries
  • close to Darwin International Airport
  • a strong and expanding Defence presence

The upcoming expansion of the Marine Industry Park will introduce a 5,000 tonne Ship Lift and a purpose-built subdivision. For further information on the proposed Ship Lift visit – Darwin Ship Lift | Infrastructure NT

Centrally positioned on Australia’s northern coastline, the Marine Industry Park is the only significant vessel servicing point between Cairns and Perth. Within Darwin’s deep water harbour, the Marine Industry Park has the potential to deliver over 100 hectares of waterfront industrial land to support marine maintenance, servicing, engineering, fabrication and logistic activities.

Adjacent to major onshore gas developments and offshore supply bases, the Marine Industry Park provides a unique opportunity to capitalise on Darwin’s expanding gas, marine services and Defence industries.

Expanding on existing assets to create Northern Australia’s largest and most efficient marine servicing hub, catering for all vessels. In addition to the 5,000 tonne capacity Ship Lift, the Marine Industry Park provides numerous opportunities for marine service training facilities, workshops and other amenities.
