The Port of Mourilyan

The Mourilyan Bulk terminal, a deep water port on the North Queensland coast through which the produce of the Fantin's and others was shipped for refining and marketing to Australia and the world, seen here circa 1979, long after the death of Francesco Fantin and after the retirement of his brothers. The installations and the tonnage of the ships will have dwarfed those of their day, but the geography remained the same which they will have known.
