The Port of Melbourne - an overview

It is a city port, located next to Melbourne's CBD with berths on the Yarra River, at Williamstown and at Station Pier in Port Melbourne. It is serviced by more than 100 nautical miles of shipping channels and fairways all the way from the Heads, the entrance to Port Phillip Bay.
