Spend a little time at Outer Harbour watching the container ships being unloaded and you realise our huge reliance on trade and shipping.
For the most part this great machine goes unnoticed. The ships often seen as silhouette curiosities as they move up and down our gulf far from shore don’t really convey their importance. The freight port of Outer Harbour is sufficiently removed from the rest of suburban Adelaide to be simply something most here are only vaguely aware of.
Next time you see a large silhouette far out at sea, or shipping container on a truck as you drive pass, spend a moment to appreciate what they do for our lives.
