Port of Wyndham

Port of Wyndham

The  Port  of  Wyndham  was  gazetted  in  1886  and  serviced  the  cattle  industry  and  gold prospectors with vessels berthing at the original jetty at Anton’s Landing.

The Ord River District Co-operative Ltd was awarded control of the port in 1999, and after a restructure Cambridge Gulf Ltd (CGL) assumed the lease and management of the port until June 2021.

The  Kimberley  Ports  Authority  (KPA)  undertook  a  Request  for  Proposal  process  for  the lease  and  management  of  the  port  with  CGL  being  the  successful  applicant.  The  current lease and management agreements expire in 2031.

Kimberley  Ports  Authority  (KPA)  operates  under  the  auspices  of  the  Port  Authorities  Act 1999  which  covers  vestment  of  the  port  land  and  waters;  and  a range  of  obligations  from trade  development,  infrastructure  planning  and  maintenance,  to  caring  for  the  environment and  ensuring  safety.  KPA  has  a  regional Harbourmaster  who  be  responsible  for  marine safety and security.

KPA  and  CGL  will  work  together  to  develop  and  grow  the  use  of  the  port  as  trade opportunities arise.
