Berths

There is limited availability of permanent berths at piers and jetties managed by Parks Victoria.

Apply for an annual berthing authority at Mornington Fishermans Jetty.

There are a number of piers and jetties available for temporary berthing. There is a time limit for the use of these facilities so all users are able to access popular destinations.

All Parks Victoria managed piers and jetties have colour coded signs identifying temporary berthing zones, loading zones, short term zones and permit only zones.

For more information about berths, please contact 13 1963.

Relevant legislation

Parks Victoria issues authorities for the mooring or berthing of vessels in accordance with the Port Management (Local Ports) Regulations 2004. Regulation 205, 206, 208 and 212 cover the authorities for mooring and berthing sites.
