2016 Safe Harbour update Portarlington

Exciting new infrastructure to last for generations to come.

Portarlington Safe Harbour will deliver enormous benefits to local people, visitors to the Peninsula as well as the aquaculture industry.

JUNE 2016 – Next Stage of Portarlington Redevelopment Begins

AW Maritime has just released an update on the Portarlington Safe Harbor Redevelopment Project.

The company is currently assisting Parks Victoria during the construction of the Portarlington scheme, having completed the detailed design of all maritime aspects of the development including breakwaters and marine structures.

Current works involve the construction of rock breakwaters to the east and north of Portarlington pier to protect the harbor.

This will then be followed by the installation of a new jetty, commercial fishing berths and loading facilities.

Portarlington Ferry in Safe Harbour

Proposed ferry service from Portarlington into Collins Landing

“We are interested in running a ferry service from Wyndham, Portarlington and Williamstown into Collins Landing.”


Mr Little told Fairfax Media on Tuesday 20th OCT. 2015.

The ferries would dock in the heart of the Docklands precinct in Melbourne and Mr Little says the economics and viability of the services are being rigorously modelled.


SeaLink is eyeing expansion into other cities and in Melbourne is working on several options including a trial of a passenger service from Portarlington on the Bellarine Peninsula across Port Phillip Bay to Melbourne. Mr Ellison said the company has held preliminary discussions with Mr Little’s private companies. The trend for state governments to want to get cars off increasingly clogged roads in Sydney and Melbourne delivers strong growth opportunities for ferry passenger services, he said.

Fast forward to February 2018 –  A daily dedicated Docklands to Portarlington Ferry is now part of the seascape.

The Portarlington Safe Harbour has just been officially completed with a dedicated floating berth for the Ferry and Cruise Ship tenders if visiting.
