Acting on a tip-off, Australian Border Force officers found the haul secreted in numerous sea cargo containers which arrived at Port Botany last month.

Police say the 748kg of methylamphetamine has an estimated potential street value of more than $675 million.

Detectives from the NSW Drug and Firearms Squad arrested three men over the stash on Wednesday.

They were all refused bail to appear in court later today.
