Station Pier is the jumping off point for cruise ship passengers heading into Melbourne for the day. It's really easy to find your way and staff are there to help guide you which is nice. Really enjoyed my time here... and there is Wi-Fi too!

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.
