Port Botany is a deep-water seaport located in Botany Bay

Port Botany in Sydney’s south is one of Australia’s largest container ports and a vital asset for the State and national economy.

Around 1600 ships carrying over 2.5 million containers (TEU) pass through Port Botany each year to support the largest population centre in the country. These ships provide the essential and everyday goods needed by the people and businesses of NSW and take the State’s valuable exports overseas.

Port Botany also specialises in bulk liquid imports, such as petroleum and natural gas, and is home to Sydney’s Vessel Traffic Services who monitor vessel movements and provide navigational assistance to mariners across Botany Bay, Sydney Harbour and beyond.

Port Botany’s landside port operations are managed by NSW Ports.
