Port of Eden Cruise Tourism Capacity Assessment

WolfPeak conducted a tourism capacity assessment to determine the infrastructure requirements for Eden and the Bega Valley to accommodate a modification proposal to the Eden Cruise Wharf. The modification would allow the visitation of larger cruise ships and other vessels to the Port of Eden.

The assessment included desktop research on industry benchmarks for the provision of cruise infrastructure, case studies of similar sized ports to compare with Eden, and consultation with over 20 local and regional industry stakeholders that are responsible for cruise-related amenities and infrastructure in Eden. 

Using the data gathered and outcomes from the consultation, the capacity of key infrastructure and services required to support cruise tourism was assessed under the modification’s two scenarios – larger ships and more frequent ships. This was presented in an assessment matrix which clearly illustrated which infrastructure and services are most at risk under each scenario. 

Based on the outcomes of the capacity assessment, four recommendations were proposed to help build the capacity of Eden and the Bega Valley region to support the proposed modification.
