Hosted by the Royal Agricultural Society of Western Australia, delegates are invited to join a tour to visit a selection of sites in the outer metro area, including: Australian Export Grains Innovation Centre, InterGrain Breeding Facility, CBH’s Australian Grains Centre and CBH’s Kwinana Grain Terminal.

Get the chance to taste-test food produced through innovative techniques, see robots packing seed or crush seeds for DNA extraction, visit the place where six million tonnes of grain leave WA each year, or see WA’s new state-of-the-art wool handling facility.

Kwinana Grain Terminal
The Kwinana Grain Terminal is Western Australia’s largest grain export facility shipping more than half of the state’s total grain production on average each year. The terminal loaded its first vessel on 5 July 1977 and at the time was the largest port terminal in the world. Standing 74 metres high, it is equipped with machinery to weigh, move and direct grain into and out of the vertical silos. It has 10 elevators with a capacity to move 1,250 tonnes per hour. It has a total storage capacity of 1,001,942 tonnes and consists of four open bulk heads, three silos and two horizontal storages.
AEGIC in South Perth
AEGIC delivers value by understanding the needs of grain customers and identifying and supporting grain market opportunities. Then, by educating customers on the benefits of Australian grain and innovating to develop new solutions and uses. The impact of AEGIC’s work spans the whole grains supply chain, from the grower in Australia whose grain is valued internationally, to the consumer who enjoys excellent noodles, baked products and beer made from Australian grain.
Metro Grain Centre and Australian Grain Centre
Located in the Shire of Kalamunda, the Metro Grain Centre (MGC) was created in 1998 to establish a world-class grain-handing complex on the tail of both standard and narrow gauge rail lines. It is connected by road and rail with the port in Fremantle, for container shipping, and Kwinana port for bulk handling of grain. It has a total storage capacity of 223,785 tonnes and consists of 10 blocks of silos. Located alongside the Metro Grain Centre in Forrestfield, the Australian Grains Centre (AGC) has the capability to provide full laboratory analysis for Western Australian produced grains, and has become a focal point for research and intelligence in grain quality.
InterGrain is a plant breeding company, providing market leading wheat, barley and oat varieties for Australian grain growers. We develop new varieties that are higher yielding, resistant to pests and diseases and have quality attributes that end-users desire – such as barley that makes great tasting beer or wheat to be made into the perfect Japanese udon noodles.
