Navigating in the pier was simple. Accessibility was great with trains running. Nice to spend some time wondering. Wish they have a place where we can store our luggage so that we could spend more time exploring the place

Visited on Friday 23rd February. We went down to have a look at Spirit of Tasmania berthed there and found there was also a cruise ship in. It was very busy with so many people around so had a quick look and drove on.

Visited Port Melbourne in 2016 and had a good enjoyable ferry ride. We loved the scenery and had very good meals in the restaurant too.

Yes there is. A nice little cafe as you enter Station Pier from the car park (just a little walk) while you can view the Spirit of Tasmania being loaded or unloaded. Not very dear. Really good coffee and service is a... More
