Take a tour of the largest exporter of nickel concentrate in the Southern Hemisphere when you visit the Port of Esperance.
Playing a vital role in connecting industries in regional WA with the rest of the world, the port is also a key international gateway to Australia’s nickel mining industry.
With a history stretching back to 1792 when the French explored the south coast of WA, the port was officially claimed by the British in 1802 and is still going strong today, with exports including nickel, iron ore and grain, and imports of fuel, containers, sulphur and fertiliser.
Bus site tours of the Port are conducted by the Esperance Apex Club every Saturday at 1:30 pm.
The tour is free, courtesy of Southern Ports Authority. Donations are gratefully accepted and distributed to local community volunteer organisations.
