Portarlington Harbour, on Wadawurrung Sea Country, has undergone significant improvements in recent years to realise the long-term vision set out in the Portarlington Safe Harbour Plan 2009. The work will create a state-of-the-art facility that is safer and more accessible for commercial operators, recreational boaters, anglers, the local community and visitors for years to come. The new Portarlington Pier was completed in 2017 and has been a popular fishing, boating and diving spot. It’s also home to Port Phillip Ferries and the Port Phillip mussel farming industry.
The next stage of works will deliver vital improvements such as a covered walkway to the ferry terminal, a new strengthened pier head, widened deck to provide safer access, and an accessible low landing. Upgrades to the pier will support local aquaculture fishers, the ferry service and other harbour visitors, as well as creating jobs during construction. Works being undertaken include:
- Pier head and low landing replacement
- Removal of the old pier
- Construction of rock groyne
- Landscape and other improvement works
