The Port of Melbourne holds the record of being the biggest container and general cargo port in the whole of Australia. It is not to be confused with the older Port Melbourne, which forms part of the massive port, housing two sections of the Port of Melbourne: Webb Dock and Station Pier.
Located in Melbourne, Victoria, the Port of Melbourne comprises part of the mouth of the Yarra River, downstream of the Bolte Bridge and many more piers located along the bay. The Port of Melbourne Corporation has been managing the port since July 2003.
The Port of Melbourne was built in 1889 and has always been a busy port ever since. Since September 2016, commercial operations in the port have been leased to the Lonsdale Consortium for a period of 50 years.
