Port Of Melbourne Boat Tours
Docklands | D05
Port Open Day tours are fun, family-friendly events and the best way to see Australia’s busiest port, right on the city’s doorstep. Featuring a guided commentary from port staff, you’ll see Australia’s busiest port from a whole new angle. Melbourne’s port is Australia’s largest container and general cargo port and a vital trade gateway – whether sending Australian grain to Guangzhou or bringing us coffee from Colombia. Handling around 36% of the nation’s container trade, over 3,000 ships call at the port each year.
Tours depart from Victoria Harbour in Docklands (right at the end of the Victoria Lights Landing, directly in front of The Vue Docklands), and include Victoria Dock and Appleton Dock, the port’s more historic facilities, before visiting the container terminals at Swanson Dock.
