Along the horizon are a number of merchant ships waiting for their turn to dock in the harbor at Newcastle Australia. As they can only enter the port at high tide, there is limited opportunity for them to discharge their loads and take on new cargo. At times there are up to 60 vessels waiting their turn, the Port Authorities regulate the shipping here, and schedule each ships time to finalize its journey.
