The vision for Western Australia’s Ports
Since 2000:
• WA’s exports have increased from $25 bn to
$121 bn in 2011-12
• WA’s share of national commodity exports
has increased from 26% to 46%
• WA now exports more than Queensland,
NSW and Victoria combined (44%)
• Despite massive growth in exports, WA has
avoided bottlenecks that afflict other states’
bulk commodity ports
• WA’s model for ports, developed in the 1990’s
and embodied in the Port Authorities Act
1999, has served WA well
WA Ports
Port authority ports
Ports managed by others

• To realise economies of
scale and overcome a
shortage in resources in the

port authorities are being
amalgamated into five
• Responsibility for Shipping &
Pilotage Act trading ports will
transfer from DoT to the new
port authorities
