Help us make a great home for Spirit of Tasmania!

GeelongPort is excited to welcome Spirit of Tasmania to Geelong in 2022 and will work with the local community and passengers to make the move seamless for everyone. We encourage you to follow this page to keep up to date on how the project is progressing.

Work is underway!

Work is underway on the new Spirit of Tasmania passenger and freight terminal at GeelongPort’s Corio Quay precinct.

The 12-hectare site will be transformed over the next 12 months into the new home of Spirit of Tasmania which will include a new passenger terminal; marshalling area for up to 600 passenger vehicles; upgraded berthing, boarding and mooring facilities; and dedicated parking for visitors, passengers, freight clients and staff.

We have appointed three experienced principal contractors to construct the new terminal precinct

  • Fitzgerald Constructions Australia who have been undertaking demolition of the existing berth structure and will continue with marine works necessary to expand the wharf, berthing and loading facilities for the terminal.
  • BMD Constructions who will deliver the landside civil construction within the port boundaries.
  • Kane Constructions who will undertake construction of the passenger terminal building.

We are working closely with our contractors to ensure they are sourcing goods and services locally where possible.

This is an important milestone for the project, and we will keep the community and Spirit of Tasmania passengers updated about our progress as we prepare to welcome Spirit of Tasmania to Geelong in spring 2022.

Welcome to Spirit of Tasmania Quay!

We have updated the original concept design that was released in December 2020 to include new features to provide a world class experience for Spirit of Tasmania passengers.

New features include a round-a-bout to help with traffic flow within the precinct and a world first three level access ramp for efficient boarding.
