Welcome, skip to the content.

Have a quick glimpse and see Port Melbourne as a sunny bayside suburb with gleaming modern architecture; look closer and find restored workers cottages and grand old pubs pubs paying homage to the bean and barley in typical Melbourne style.

Beacon Cove and Station Pier

Don your designer gear and pound the palm-lined path that hugs the Port Melbourne foreshore. Deviate past architect-designed houses and the high-rise apartment blocks overlooking Port Phillip Bay. Catch your breath in Beach Street's cafes, dress up for beachfront beverages, or dip your toes in the water.

Plant yourself at 3 Station Pier or Waterfront and people-watch as the Spirit of Tasmania ferry arrives, and the international cruise ships dock.

Back in Bay Street

Step back from the beach to Bay Street. Scout quality coffees at Balderdash and My Sister Says and find best French provisions at Noisette. Shop up a storm at Bay Street's swanky boutiques and absorb a spot of culture at MARS Gallery. The Graham, The Local and the Railway Club Hotel will set you up with frothy beers (boutique, naturally) and top-notch pub grub, while Rose Bar & Diner and Dalmatino provide alternative dining options.

You need to retreat from the waterfront to find the suburb's best coffee, with Salford Lads Club and Station Street Trading Co. both worth a detour.
