Crossing Bass Strait to be easier

Did you know the Spirit of Tasmania is moving its mainland link from Station Pier, Port Melbourne to Corio Quay just north of Geelong?

This is good news for caravanners and larger vehicles, heading for holidays on the Apple Isle.   That dreaded going round in circles and doing laps of Station Pier, trying to find somewhere to park is coming to an end!

Catching the Spirit on the mainland side has always been a bit of a bottle neck for parking larger vehicles waiting to cross Bass Strait, not to mention the hassle of getting through busy Melbourne often at peak hour. I’ve seen holiday makers frustratingly doing the loop trying to find anywhere to wait in readiness for boarding.

The new site site in Geelong will change all that. The brand new, purpose designed terminal will be fitted with cutting-edge technology and enhanced facilities. It is 12 hectares with a marshalling area for 600 vehicles, public amenities, a cafe, play area for kids and a pet exercise area.

The concept image above shows the planned layout.  Construction is underway and all should be ready by Spring of this year.

This has to be good news for travellers who can now relax, have a clear place to park and plan their arrival with less stress!  When you arrive in Devonport, check out our travel guides and Camps Australia Wide App for places to camp nearby.
