We contribute to a smart, sustainable and vibrant Newcastle

Port Waratah is committed to proactively engaging with our stakeholders. We strive to build strong relationships through open, timely and two-way communication and continually improving our engagement methods and activities.

Our engagement approach includes the six-monthly Local Voices Community Survey, quarterly community meetings, direct engagement with portside community groups, industry forums, a 24-hour enquiry line, social media, website enquiry form and tour programme.

We contribute to the local economy by buying and employing locally and support sustainability and resilience of the local community through our Community Investment and Partnership Programme.

In 2021, we spent $85.5 million in the Hunter and Central Coast regions, representing 78 per cent of our total spend. Our Community Investment and Partnership Programme invested $750,000 across 137 projects, initiatives and events focused on building capacity, skills and knowledge within local individuals and organisations.
