About Victoria's local ports

By servicing a wide range of users, local ports play a vital role in local communities and support industries of importance to Victoria's economy.

Local ports along Victoria's coasts provide services to the commercial fishing industry, charter boats, and recreational fishing and boating interests.

They are also key recreation and tourist assets and contribute significantly to the regional economies.

Local ports are managed with the support of a funding program administered by the Department of Transport.
