VISION “To be the safest and most competitive ports network in regional Australia.” MISSION “The facilitation of maritime trade to deliver sustainable economic and social benefits for stakeholders across our region.”
The Kimberley Ports Authority has been enabled under the Ports Legislation Amendment Act 2014.
The Minister and the Department of Transport undertook a review of “The Role of Ports in Western Australia” in 2012 which initiated the ports amalgamation process. Resultantly, the Kimberley Ports Authority will in due course assume the current Department of Transport responsibilities at the following ports:
Yampi Sound ports of Cockatoo and Koolan Islands (potentially Irvine Island)
the proposed port at James Price Point
