Moorings and berths


Parks Victoria manages multiple mooring grounds and berthing locations throughout Port Phillip and Western Port.


There are different types of moorings, including:

  • Annual moorings - Parks Victoria moorings permits on an annual basis.
  • Destination moorings - Parks Victoria moorings, intended for short-term (overnight) stays, available on a first-come first-served basis.
  • Seasonal moorings - Parks Victoria moorings available for exclusive use between December and April.

To contact a moorings officer, email or call Parks Victoria on 13 1963 and ask to be connected to the relevant office:

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

Apply for an annual berthing permit 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.
