Strong Communities & Partnerships

Port of Townsville acknowledges the Gurumbilbarra Wulgurukaba and Bindal people as the custodians of the Townsville area where Townsville Port is located, and the Warrgamay people where Lucinda Port is located. We respect the spiritual relationship that the people of the world’s oldest continuous living culture hold with the Country and we acknowledge their Elders past, present and emerging.

We are committed to fostering strong First Nations and multi-cultural relationships to celebrate the people that create the vibrant fabric of our communities. 

As the founding business of Townsville, we understand that creating jobs and economic growth are essential ingredients for a vibrant community. Our staff are proud members of the communities we serve, and we are committed long-term to providing support to local industry, research organisations, charities and projects that address the need in our communities.

We are in the heart of the largest city in Northern Australia and we strive to play an active role that positively contributes to the community through meaningful partnerships, support programs, grants and sponsorships.

Our shared city port vision and our commitment to our communities extends well beyond the Port gate. Our unique and ecologically sensitive location has allowed us to partner with world leading research institutes such as the James Cook University, the Australian Institute of Marine Science, Dry Tropics Partnership for Healthy Waters and many more. Our collaborations with our partners stimulate our thinking and help us to create industry-leading improvements and innovations. 

Our newly created Port Vision 2050 Community Fund which is open for community and partnership applications every year between 1st of February and 28th of April, will assist us to do more and achieve more… together with you.  

We will help build strong communities and partnerships by:

  • Supporting local industry and educational collaboration
  • Fostering strong First Nations and multi-cultural relationships

You can track our progress on our initiatives through our dashboard.
