Port Of Melbourne Boat Tours

Melbourne’s port is Australia’s premier container and general cargo port and a vital trade gateway for Victoria, Tasmania and parts of regional NSW and South Australia.

Around 36 percent of Australia’s trade moves through Melbourne, and around 3000 ships which visit each year.

Open House Melbourne boat tours visit the three main docks in the north of the port; Swanson Dock, Appleton Dock and Victoria Dock.
