Sail into Melbourne and dock at Station Pier in the sunny bayside suburb of Port Melbourne, just four kilometres from the city centre.
Station Pier has direct transport links by road and public transport to Melbourne, Australia's second largest city and the capital of Victoria.
Melbourne is renowned for its labyrinthine laneways, which house the city's coffee obsession, gastronomic culture, hidden bars, eclectic fashion boutiques, and world-class art galleries. Energising green spaces, a uniform love of large sporting events plus rollicking live music and theatre scenes give the city its liveliness, while a mix of heritage buildings and cutting-edge architecture create fascinating streetscapes.
Explore the city's fringe – the suburbs that flaunt their individual characters. Be sure to spend time around Station Pier in Port Melbourne, with its palm tree-lined paths, beachside dining options, and high-end fashion.
Get out of the city
It's easy to travel further afield than the city from the cruise ship terminal. In less than an hour you can be watching the penguins at Phillip Island, tasting wines by the seaside in Mornington Peninsula, soaking in natural mineral spas in Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges, or floating over the Yarra Valley's wineries by balloon.
Safe and welcoming Station Pier offers four dedicated berths, ensuring it is well equipped to cope with the demand of the growing number of cruise ships. A Meet, Greet and Farewell program makes it easy to travel to and from the recently refurbished terminal. Friendly staff will help organise a limousine, taxi, shuttle bus or tram into the city.
