Oakajee Port is a proposed deep water port to be built in the Mid West region of Western Australia, about 25 kilometres (16 mi) north of the city of Geraldton to service the region's growing iron ore industry. Approval by the Government of Western Australia for the construction and operation of the port and rail facility was announced on 29 July 2008, with the contract being awarded to Oakajee Port & Rail Pty Ltd, a joint venture between Murchison Metals Ltd. and Mitsubishi Corporation.
Construction was expected to commence in 2011 with completion possible by 2014. The project, including the associated rail project and rolling stock is expected to cost about A$4 billion. The port will have an initial capacity of 45 million metric tons of iron ore annually.
In 2012, media speculation on the cancellation of the project increased with announcements of delays and cutbacks  however the Premier of Western Australia Colin Barnett has publicly stated his desire to facilitate conciliation between the various parties involved 
In June 2013 Mitsubishi announced they were suspending work until an investment partner could be found.
The port and facilities will be constructed within approximately 6,400 hectares (16,000 acres) of land owned by the State Government. The property is used as farmland but 1,100 hectares (2,700 acres) is zoned for heavy industrial and 200 hectares (490 acres) zoned for support industries. It is roughly bordered by the Buller River to the south, Coronation Beach Road to the north and the Moresby Ranges to the east.
The site was first considered as a port and railway terminus approximately 30 years ago.
Opposition to the project from locals has highlighted environmental concerns including the destruction of the nearby and pristine Coronation Beach.
Lobbying in favour of the project has been from a partnership known as Geraldton Iron Ore Alliance which includes miners Mount Gibson Iron, Midwest Corporation (ASX:MIS), Murchison Metals Ltd (ASX:MMX), Gindalbie Metals (ASX:GBG), Golden West Resources, Royal Resources Ltd, Asia Iron Holdings Ltd and Atlas Iron Ltd.
The alternative project considered by the government was to deepen and enlarge the existing Geraldton Port, however this was considered non-viable due to environmental issues associated with the port being situated relatively close to the city.
