The Brisbane Cruise Terminal are anticipating its two millionth passenger this year, which has fast tracked any forecast previously made. The season calls for 85 calls, which will see 215,000 guests board the cruise said Lee Butterworth, the managing director.

The terminal headed into its final stages of their redevelopment project last month, in September. This project included enhancement to the guest experience on board by integrating the terminal into the on-port wharf entertainment and dining area.

“We expect we’ll see other destinations adopt the Brisbane Cruise Terminal model of a boutique port integrated with retail and residential, as people demand more interaction with local destinations, rather than just what is offered onboard the ship,” Butterworth said.

Near to the facility, the 650 million dollar upgrade to the Kingsford Smith Driving is also well under way, this will see it turned into a beautiful six-lane boulevard featuring a boardwalk along the water.

Macarthur Avenue has also been upgraded as part of an infrastructure project planned of the area.
