Port of Lucinda
Located 100 kilometres north of Townsville, the Port of Lucinda exports raw sugar grown in the Ingham district. It is equipped with on-shore sugar handling and storage facilities, as well as a single trestle jetty and conveyor running out to an off-shore berth and shiploader.
The jetty is one of the longest of its type in the world, extending 5.6 kilometres out to sea and dipping 1.2 metres over its length as it follows the curvature of the earth. Sugar takes 22 minutes to travel along the conveyor from the on-shore storage sheds to the shiploader.
