All Flinders Port Holdings ports and facilities remain operational, with the exception of the Cruise Terminal at Port Adelaide which is currently closed.
We are actively monitoring developments regarding the containment of COVID-19 and will provide further updates here when necessary. Our primary concern continues to be the safety and wellbeing of our staff and the public.
This page is regularly updated with information about our response and you can also access our general COVID-19 FAQs below:
South Australian border reopening announcement
On Friday June 12th, the South Australian Government announced that state borders will reopen on July 20th, at which point visitors from interstate will no longer need to undertake mandatory 14-day self-isolation.
Flinders Port Holdings will facilitate crew changes on ships in a safe and coordinated manner. Crew shore leave will not be granted and unfortunately visiting crews will need to remain on their individual ships until further notice. Crew members will be permitted to come onto the wharf to perform their normal functions, but they will be isolated from local port staff and the public.
We will continue to liaise with the South Australian Government and the Australian Border Force (ABF) about transitional measures.
Port Adelaide Cruise Liner Terminal
Cruise travel to Port Adelaide and the State’s regional ports is currently suspended. The next domestic cruise ship arrival is scheduled for November 2020. There are no international cruise arrivals currently scheduled for this year.
We will continue to liaise with relevant bodies regarding future cruise travel to and from South Australia. If you are booked on a cruise for the 2020/2021 season, please contact your cruise operator.
In Australia, the Coronavirus response is being managed by the Federal Government Department of Agriculture, the Department of Health, and by relevant authorities at State level.
Flinders Port Holdings are operating ports in line with Government guidance and requirements and we remain in regular contact with all relevant health and regulatory bodies and are ready to support authorities as necessary.
