​Station Pier maintenance and upgrades

Station Pier is an operational shipping facility. Every year it welcomes around 120 cruise ships and their 400,000 passengers and crew. It also hosts visiting navy ships.

Activities in 2024

Annual routine maintenance and upgrade works are currently underway. Part of our ongoing maintenance program, these works protect the pier’s heritage and maintain it as a safe shipping and cruise facility.

Planned works this year include:

  • refurbishment of the Gatehouse roof and exterior, including painting
  • the ongoing, annual pile rehabilitation program (including West Finger Pier)
  • painting, corrosion protection, electrical and other works on elements of the pier structure and buildings.

For safety during these works, Station Pier remains closed to the public.

Works are within approved Heritage Victoria permit requirements.

Removal of non-heritage structure

The elevated ramp beside the pier, previously used by the Bass Strait ferries, will be removed. This is a non-heritage structure. 

Removal works will be conducted between 7.30 am and 5 pm Monday to Friday and 7.30 and and 4 pm Saturday. Started in April 2024, the removal is scheduled for completion around mid-year.

Planning for fender upgrade

Initial planning has started for upgrading the pier’s fenders to continue to meet the needs of the cruise industry.
