The proposal is to construct a deepwater port to service fully loaded Panamax sized vessels (65 000 DWT) at Oakajee, approximately 23 kilometres north of Geraldton.
Three site locations (north, south and central) and two different design options (inshore and off-shore) were considered in developing the proposal. The design option favoured by the proponent is an in-shore port design at the northern sector.
The port study area is approximately 23 kilometres north of Geraldton. The port will service the Oakajee industrial estate to be established adjacent to the port area.
