These fun, family-friendly guided boat tours around the Port of Melbourne are a great way to see and learn about Australia's busiest port; located right on the Melbourne CBD doorstep.

Featuring expert commentary from port staff and children's activities including face painting and boat-themed colouring, these affordable tours are a great day out for big and little kids alike.

You'll get to experience the port from a whole new angle and get access to areas you normally wouldn't see. It's also the ONLY way to go under the iconic Westgate Bridge!!

Port of Melbourne is the country's largest container and general cargo port, a vital trade gateway and significant contributor to Australia's economy whether sending Australian grain to Guangzhou or bringing us coffee from Colombia.

Getting to see these large ships and containers so close, provides an insight into the sheer scale of the operation, the number of people who work at the port and the huge amount of products being shipped in and out every day.
