This FACT indicates the total number of cargo in tonnes that was imported to each Australian capital city port between the years 2015 to 2016. These number are represented in millions.
These numbers have an impact on infrastructure and government policy, as well as providing insight into the self-sustainability of each city. The city with the highest number of imports is Sydney - the most heavily populated state - at 20.4 million tonnes. The city with the lowest was Hobart, at 1.2 million tonnes. In this instance, Canberra has been omitted since it has no sea ports.
