Port Open Day Boat Tours
These are set to return for a limited summer season commencing in November, so don’t miss out on your chance for a behind the scenes look at the Port of Melbourne. Departing from Williamstown in the morning and Docklands in the afternoon, Port Open Day tours are free, family friendly events, and the best way to see Australia’s busiest container port like never before.
The first tour day for the summer is Sunday, 29 November (bookings open 9 am on Monday 9 November), with more tours scheduled for February and April 2016.
These tours tend to book out in the first few hours, so be sure to get in early. For more information and all tour dates, visit the boat tour webpage.
Cruise Ships for the Cup
While Flemington gears up for a busy Melbourne Cup Carnival, final preparations are also underway at Station Pier for a huge weekend of cruise shipping. It all kicks off on 2 November with the arrival of the Carnival Spirit, followed by three thoroughbreds from the P&O stable; Pacific Pearl, Pacific Jewel, and Pacific Dawn. So it's going to busy around Station Pier next week.
