Newport Terminal has been operating since 1916 and continues to be one of Victoria’s primary fuel distribution centres. It supplies fuels to Melbourne and greater Victoria, including Jet Fuel to Melbourne Airport.
Pipelines transfer fuel products into Newport Terminal from our Geelong Refinery, and from marine import terminals in Corio Bay and Holden Dock in Yarraville. Fuel products also arrive by road tanker.
Newport Terminal has storage tanks and vehicle filling gantries for fuels, solvents and lubricants, and storage tanks for Diesel, Jet Fuel and Gasoline.
Because Newport Terminal stores and handles significant quantities of fuels, lubricants and solvents, it is designated as a Major Hazard Facility in the Victorian OHS Regulations 2017.

We have a comprehensive emergency response plan for Newport Terminal that involves documented procedures, staff training and maintenance of a hazardous goods register. We conduct regular inter-agency emergency response exercises to test our emergency response plans.
The alarms at the Newport Terminal are a vital way of ensuring that our people on-site respond quickly and safely to an incident.
The alarms are tested at 1.30pm every Thursday.
General Alarm – 30 seconds of an alternating pitch of the alarm. In the event of an incident, the general alarm will sound for at least one minute or more.
All clear – 30 seconds of continuous sounding of the siren. This signifies if there is an incident, it is now under control.
An alarm heard any other time means an incident has occurred on site that requires attention by terminal personnel.
The community does not need to take action when an alarm sounds unless instructed otherwise by the Police or Emergency Services.
We offer local residents free fridge magnets with information about our alarms. If you’d like one, please complete our online feedback form and include your postal address.
We provide updates about the Newport Terminal at our Community Information Evenings and via an annual newsletter.
