Australian Marine Complex

Located in Perth’s premier industrial corridor, just 23 km south of the city, the Australian Marine Complex (AMC) is Western Australia's leading shipbuilding and sustainment industrial precinct. It serves as a vital hub for the marine, defence, energy, and resource industries, providing comprehensive solutions for manufacturing, fabrication, assembly, and maintenance needs.

The AMC proudly houses major players in the defence, marine, and shipbuilding sectors, such as:

  • Austal

  • BAE Systems

  • Civmec

  • Luerssen Australia.

AMC also plays a critical role as a sustainment hub for the Royal Australian Navy's presence on Garden Island, undertaking all out-of-water repair and upgrade activities for the fleet in WA.

Beyond its maritime significance, the AMC has been instrumental in some of the country's most significant mining, oil, and gas projects. It stands as one of only two locations suitable for naval shipbuilding in Australia, making it a crucial cornerstone of the nation's industrial capabilities.

With over 150 businesses operating within its premises, the AMC offers comprehensive services catering to the marine, defence force, and resource industries. Since its establishment in 2003, this impressive complex has generated more than 37,000 jobs and become a driving force behind economic growth in the region.
