    Cruise Ships Expected to Return from October

    Currently there is a bio security order prohibiting cruise ships (with a greater capacity than ninety-nine passengers) from operating in Australian waters. The current order expires on 17 April 2022. The Federal Minister for Health may cancel or extend the order. Given that Australian borders are now open for tourists, the current order may be allowed to expire.

    The Coral Geographer, a small cruise ship with less than 99 passengers, will be at Station Pier on 1 March 2022. 

    Ports Victoria are anticipating and planning for cruise ships returning to Melbourne in October or November 2022. If the biosecurity order is lifted in April 2022, Ports Victoria anticipate a near normal cruise season from October 2022 to April 2023.

    Spirit of Tasmania Ferries are Moving to Geelong

    Since our earlier update we understand that the ferries will move to Corio Quay in Spring 2022. 

    New Restaurant/Bar at The London - 92 Beach Street

    The developer is actively seeking a tenant for the restaurant/wine bar on the ground floor. Any tenant would need to do a major fit out so it will not be ready for some time. There are seventeen apartments in this building which is on the site of the old London Hotel.

    Positive Ageing

    The City of Port Phillip (CoPP) is developing a Positive Ageing Policy which will guide future decisions about how it can respond to the needs and aspirations of people aged 60 years and older. Whilst not specific to BCNA, we are aware that our membership includes many mature individuals and accordingly, we believe it relevant to bring this to member attention.

    The survey closes on 4 March and more information can be found here.
