Lucky Bay port

Lucky Bay is an innovative port development on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula.

The $130 million development is South Australia’s first farmer and private equity partnership port, which involved securing private investor equity and debt.

After an expression of interest phase in 2018, 120 EP grain growers indicated their support for the project with 377,000 tonnes of estimated throughput.

These growers will acquire equity in the port for ongoing throughput over the next seven years.
