Exploring the bayside

When it comes to exploring Port Melbourne, you’ll enjoy the sea breeze and salty air as you walk the streets lined with palm trees. Follow your nose down to the beach, which offers lovely picnic spots and summer fun down in the water. You can choose to go for a swim at Sandridge Beach or Port Melbourne Beach, both of which offer golden sand and shallow waters, perfect for the kids. In fact, they are favourite spots to cool down in style on a scorching hot day.

Princes Pier

A highlight of Port Melbourne is Princes Pier, built in 1915 to welcome steam liners and mail ships. The pier went into decline but was refurbished and re-opened in 2011 as a public space, offering insight into the history of Pre-war Port Melbourne and amazing photo opportunities.
