Melbourne's main cruising season is from November to April.
Melbourne’s Cruise Terminal, Station Pier, has three berths for cruise ships, and one that is the permanent home of the Spirit of Tasmania. It is easily accessible by public transport, including the tram (route 109) to Port Melbourne, a five minute walk from Station Pier. There is also a taxi rank at the terminal, as well as short-term parking at the Waterfront Place precinct, immediately adjoining Station Pier. Long-term parking is available at Tullamarine Airport, approximately 20km from the port, and connected to it by a regular bus service.
