Ports North has welcomed HMAS Canberra, the largest vessel serving in the Royal Australian Navy, to the Port of Cairns today for her first visit to the city.

The 230m long vessel is one of the newest of the fleet, commissioned in 2014, and arrived carrying about 1000 crew and soldiers.

She will be berthed at Wharf 7/8 until next Tuesday (July 9).

“She made quite a spectacular entry,” Ports North chairman Russell Beer said.

“Not only is she a decent length but her height is very commanding.”

Mr Beer said HMAS Canberra’s visit was only confirmed yesterday, after ports further south were unable to accommodate her.

“This is a real coup for the Port of Cairns,” he said. “We have the flexibility and the capacity to welcome her on such short notice – not to mention having the beautiful natural surroundings and vibrant city which will prove perfect for crew and soldiers looking for some respite.”

The ship will also be taking on one million litres of fuel during its stay as well as goods from local provedores.
