Queen's Wharf was officially opened as part of the 'New Port' in 1840. Six thousand spectators watched as two boxes of tea and spices were winched out of the South Australian Company’s vessel Guiana to mark the milestone. The New Port was an ambitious joint venture by the government and South Australian Company to provide two new wharves and warehouses and a new road: the foundation of the Port we know today.
