Station Pier is a historic pier that has played a significant role in Victoria's history in Melbourne. This pier has also been host to thousands of migrants who came to Australia’s shores after the Second World War Due to its historicity and significance, this pier and its unique Gate House are heritage listed. Today, the Station Pier is considered to be Melbourne's premier cruise ship terminal and is also host to the Spirit of Tasmania ferry service from Melbourne to Devonport. What makes this pier a unique one is that it is constructed directly off the beach into Port Phillip Bay unlike many cruise ship terminals that are located within a freight terminal. From here, the visitors can enjoy astounding views of the sea and can walk on its ramp on sunny afternoons.

  • This pier is open to pedestrians only.

  • Entry is free.

  • The pier is closed to the public during cruise ship visits, some naval ship visits and other exceptional circumstances.

  • Our Tasmanian adventure started great, the Melbourne wharf crew were very professional and polite, most of the ships crew were polite, reserved seats were OK for the price. We had an OK breakfast and decided to try lunch and settle down to a pleasant sea voyage to Devonport, this was a major mistake. The lunch menu promised to be a good variety until you go to pay. Outrageously priced, food was dry and not the selection as advertised and the cashier was embarrassed and tried to explain why our entree size meals, cake and small bottle of wine cost me $69. I can only make the excuse for her that she must have had many complaints to react the way she did and in front of another customer who refused to take her meal due to the cost. Tasmanian tourism please take notice as this is the doorway to the rest of the state.

  • if the booking process has any bearing on the trip we are going to be very happy.

  • Everything on the boat is expensive... our twin room stank like the toilet, fairly sure the sheets were not changed as they had a stink to them too, no tv in room no kettle no nothing only 2 single beds shower and toilet, very disappointing! Oh and did I mention stinky!

  • beautiful place for sunset. feel leisure and chilling at any restaurant next to the pier beer and food.

  • convenient option if your wanting to take the car

    • Parking your car at the Ace Parking | 45-53 Bay St., Port Melbourne will be most convenient if you are looking for Station Pier Parking. There are a bunch of other paid parking spots too. The meeting point is subjective to your convenience, no designated meeting point as such.
