Cruise ships & ferries
Cruise into Melbourne
Melbourne is a popular port for the world's most prestigious cruise liners. Just four kilometres from the city centre, Melbourne's Station Pier services porting and visiting cruise ships, and is the permanent home of the Spirit of Tasmania I and II, the car and passenger ferry service between Melbourne and Devonport, Tasmania.
The port's terminal offers passengers a range of services, including lounge facilities and visitor information, in a safe and friendly environment. Taxis, coaches, tour guides and the Skybus shuttle service operate pick-ups from the wharf. From October to April, knowledgeable staff and volunteers from the City of Melbourne operate an information desk at Station Pier. A tram service to the city runs directly from the pier.

Getting around Melbourne and Victoria doesn't have to mean hours in traffic. Spend an afternoon breathing in the fresh air out on the water on a ferry ride down the Yarra River or across Port Phillip Bay.
Melbourne Water Taxis land at points on the Yarra River, between Abbotsford and Williamstown; and on the Maribyrnong River as far as Canning Street, Essendon.
