About the project

Spirit of Tasmania is relocating its Victorian operations from Station Pier, Port Melbourne to Corio Quay, north of Geelong to provide an improved experience for the 450,000 passengers who travel annually and support the long-term operations of this highly valued service.

GeelongPort has partnered with Spirit of Tasmania to develop a dedicated passenger and freight terminal for Spirit of Tasmania's vessels.

The new 12-hectare site located within GeelongPort’s Corio Quay precinct will include a passenger terminal building, a vehicle marshalling area for 600 cars, a parking area for 150 trucks, security facilities, public amenities, crew accommodation, a cafe, children’s play area and a pet exercise area.

Construction of the new facilities will start in 2021 and will be operational by 2022.
