NSW Ports sponsors some key events and organisation throughout each calendar year.
Applications are selected on merit and their compatibility with NSW Ports' values and goals.
Australian National Maritime Museum
NSW Ports is excited to be the major sponsor of an exciting new exhibition at the Australian National Maritime Museum "Container - the box that changed the world". This exciting, free, outdoor interactive exhibition opens on 26th October 2017.
The exhibition will provide an opportunity for the community to get an insight in to the world of ports and shipping.
Housed entirely within six 20-foot shipping containers, the exhibit will invite visitors to explore the technical, economic, environmental, social and cultural impacts of containerisation.
It will bring to life the value and importance of the transport and logistics sector.
It will also be a visual demonstration of the link between local trade and logistics and the global market in which Australia operates.
The exhibition is structured around six key themes:
SHIP - Learn the history of transporting goods in crates, bales, sacks and barrels loaded by hand, and how the container now allows the world’s 1.5 million seafarers to deliver 10 billion tonnes of trade each year.
CARGO - Discover the intricate world of trade, customs, and biosecurity, and how perishable goods are transported around the world in the ‘cold’ chain.
PORT - See the radical transformation of ports and port cities in Australia and around the world. Have a peek behind the scenes at Port Botany, one of Australia’s busiest ports and the gateway for 99 per cent of New South Wales’ container demand.
OCEAN - Explore the challenges mass shipping poses to our oceans, including lost shipping containers, cargo spills and acoustic pollution, and the current focus on sustainable shipping.
BUILD - Be delighted by the quirky and innovative ways containers are used beyond shipping, including ‘small homes’, food trucks, art installations and even swimming pools.
THINGS - Enter a glass-fronted container demonstrating the origins of everyday objects in our homes. The total number of kilometres travelled by sea by all the products in this container is 887,082 km

Port Kembla Surf Club
NSW Ports is proud to continue its ongoing support for the Port Kembla Surf Life Saving Club.
In 2016, NSW Ports entered into a three year sponsorship agreement with the local club, providing funds for the purchase of a new surf boat.
Port Kembla Surf Life Saving Club and its members play a critical role in protecting beachgoers and NSW Ports is pleased to continue to support these committed volunteers as they serve the local community.
