Port of Esperance Master Planning Project

Port of Esperance Master Planning Project

Southern Ports is proudly the custodian of the three ‘gateway’ ports of Albany, Bunbury and Esperance, connecting Western Australia to the world.

Our Corporate Vision is Strong Regional Ports: Strong Regions and we believe excellent long-term planning can help realise this determination. As such, we have commenced a Port Master Planning project for the Port of Esperance which will help guide and shape our planning in forward years.

The Port of Esperance Master Plan will take a long-term view of the Port's planning and infrastructure requirements up to 2050+. The project will essentially progress through three stages:

Throughout the master planning project, this project page will be used to share information and as the location for key project documents.


As part of the ‘Baseline’ phase of the project, we want to capture your views on what you think are the most important issues to be addressed in the Port Master Plan. As such, we have developed a survey which will gather feedback essential to the success of our long-term strategy.

Note that any information submitted through the survey will be treated in the strictest of confidence in accordance with our Privacy and Security policy.

The survey is open until midnight Friday 25th September and can be accessed via the following link:

A short summary of the survey results will be prepared in mid-October.

Please check back to this web page throughout the project for updates and/or further opportunities to be involved.

We also commit to making the final plans easily available to all stakeholders so that the vision for the Port of Esperance can be shared amongst all stakeholders.
