Port Melbourne, a port of call ...
Melbourne is an increasingly popular port of call for some of the world's most prestigious cruise liners. Fifty-six cruise ships visited the pier in the 2011/2012 cruise season with a record 58 ships expected for 2012/2013. Combined with increased patronage on the Spirit of Tasmania sailings, this ensures an active precinct at Waterfront Place.
Station Pier has two terminal buildings that provide for Spirit of Tasmania ferry services, and for visiting cruise ships, Navy or tall ships. The increasing interest of Melbourne as a cruise ship destination is likely to result in larger ships visiting Station Pier
For more information about cruise shipping in Victoria, including a listing of the cruise liners visiting Melbourne this summer, see the Port of Melbourne website, in particular the Ship Movements pages.
Spirit of Tasmania ferry service
The Spirit of Tasmania I and II ferries travel daily between Station Pier and Devonport, Tasmania. For information about the ships and their schedules, visit the Spirit of Tasmania website.
The Council continues to work with the Port of Melbourne Corporation and key stakeholders to ensure that access to the waterfront and surrounding areas is best managed to meet the needs of all users and traffic congestions minimised.
