Port Heritage Trail - Site 3

Continue along the Port Heritage Trail to discover more about the history, development and current operations of the Port of Melbourne. The trail explores points of interest between Point Gellibrand in Williamstown and Station Pier in Port Melbourne.

Melbourne’s waterways have changed significantly since the city’s establishment in 1835, due to the need for direct deep water access and the varying demands of riverfront development.

Today the port is managed by Port of Melbourne Corporation, whose precursor was founded in 1877 as the Melbourne Harbor Trust.
