Cairns Port Development Inc. is FIGHTING on your behalf for our port's future - but we're desperately in need of FIGHTING FUNDS.   A 'War Chest' - sufficient funding to counter the environmentalists' negative claims, via maximum-impact positive 'messaging' through advertising and all other available media.

'Please consider' your donation to this campaign, which is being conducted on a voluntary basis by the management committee and general members. It is critical to the future of our city and region. 

Yes, this IS an urgent request as funds are required to support the work we are undertaking to:   

  • Communicate the issues and solutions to all levels of government and UNESCO via direct mail, meetings and media.
  • Communicate the issues and solutions to the broader Far North Queensland community.
  • Interrogate the Cairns Shipping Development Project EIS and respond with submissions. 
  • Commission an independent project that assesses and recommends the lowest cost environmentally acceptable dredging solution.
  • Carry out the administrative functions of the organisation and support the members activities. 


Donation funds will be put towards costs to carry out this vital work and financial reports will be available to the members of Cairns Shipping Development Inc.
