Port of Melbourne, Station Pier berths:
OWSP = Outer West Station Pier

Access to Station Pier
Station Pier is closed to the public when cruise ships are berthed but the West Finger Pier is a good vantage point. See Visiting Station Pier for information about car parking, transport and public access times.
Approximate times of transit through the Heads
For approximate times of cruise ships passing through the Heads, subtract three hours from the estimated time of arrival (ETA) at Station Pier or add three hours to the estimated time of departure (ETD) from Station Pier. Please note the ETA and ETD may be affected by sailing or other conditions.
Port of Melbourne
Peter Harry, Head of Corporate Relations of Port of Melbourne Corporation says the schedule is updated regularly, so check their schedule before going down to check the cruise ships out.
Day Trip in Melbourne
A visitor wrote looking for suggestions for a day in Melbourne that started at Port Melbourne.
Most suggestions started with catching a bus or tram (see below for a Myki Ticket) into the city, visit Federation Square, Yarra River, walk along Southgate to Crown. If time permits visit Queen Victoria market, M.C.G. (Melbourne Cricket Ground) or if its open, the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel.

PTV (Public Transport Victoria) have a page dedicated to Cruise Ship visitors that explains how to travel from Station Pier (Port Melbourne) to Melbourne.
The bus shuttles and trams cost a normal public transport fare and you must travel with a myki which you can buy at the PTV ticket booth inside the Cruise Terminal.
