Station Pier In Port Melbourne, the Station Pier played an important role in the city’s growth and development as it was the disembarkation point for many of its new immigrants, those seeking a better life and those seeking gold. Today it is where international cruise liners stop for their visit to Melbourne and for the ferries that come and go to Tasmania.
