Station Pier And the nearby Princes Pier are a great place to visit for locals and tourist alike.
Station Pier is the place where cruise ships arrive for Melbourne and the Spirit of Tasmania leave from here also.
Head towards the west and you come to Princes pier with great photos can be taken and read up on the importance it had with Imigrents arriving in Australia.
Catch the 109 tram from Collins street to get hear from the city.
It's a lovely walk along the water front and if you have time on your side walk to St Kilda it will take around 1 hour
then catch the tram back to the city.

We received a super welcome at the Melbourne Cruise Port [Station Pier] and some good advice, information and help from the Port Visitor Centre in the Cruise Terminal together with maps etc.

As in the other ports we used in Australia and New Zealand, we took the local transport into the city; this time we used the Express Shuttle from just outside the port which took us to the Melbourne Arts Centre in about fifteen minutes.

There are a number of other transport options to get to the city including taxis, the HoHo bus [stop 9 on the Black St Kilda tour route], or a tram which can be caught after a ten minute walk [about 600 metres] from the port.

If you fancy a coffee, drink or snack in the port area there is a good choice in Waterfront Place just outside the port with a selection of lovely cafes and shops too.

We had another most enjoyable day.

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!

Station Pier is the main wharf for cruise ship operating into Melbourne, particularly the Spirit of Tasmania that takes you from here to Devonport, the capital of Tasmania. The entire area surrounding Station Pier used to be Melbourne’s port district but has been gentrified. Converted warehouses now become fancy apartments and cafe with boardwalks and trails built for runners and cyclists. It’s actually a pretty chill place to hang out in the evening and is comparatively less crowded compared to St Kinda.

Recently, whilst on the Celebrity Solstice cruise ship, we docked at Station Pier to visit Melbourne. Station Pier is located in easy walking distance to the surrounding Port Melbourne shopping precinct. Also there are trams are available here for easy access to the Melbourne CBD. There are many eateries around Station Pier and along the Port Melbourne shopping precinct. It is nice to stroll along the waterfront to Port Melbourne and take in the many vistas and photo opportunities.

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.

My hubby and I have cruised from multiple ports around the world and Melbourne's pier area is very nice. Keep in mind that many passenger ports are located in industrial zones where cargo containers and cargo ships reside. So to experience Melbourne's port was pleasant. For those going into the city center of Melbourne there is a local tram bus #109 just a short distance away from where one departs the cruise ship. One can purchase tram tickets or tours right outside the ship. We had already pre-booked a tour to the Great Ocean Road and our tour van was located just outside the passenger car garage near a restaurant.
