Port Phillip seasonal moorings
Mornington Peninsula is a popular holiday destination and a recreational boat user's paradise. To avoid getting stuck in queues at the boat ramps, book one of our environmentally-friendly seasonal moorings!
There are 44 seasonal moorings located in the shallow waters between Tyrone and Blairgowrie available for booking between November and April. In the interest of safety and effective port management, Parks Victoria have made some changes this season and a limited number of moorings have been tagged out. As a result, we are unable to offer seasonal moorings within Rye and Tootgarook Mooring Grounds. Please make sure to confirm the location of the seasonal moorings in the maps to ensure you select the best mooring for you.
The 2023-24 seasonal mooring season will commence on Saturday 18 November 2023 with the season ending on Thursday 28 April 2024.
Booking for the 2023-24 season will open at 12pm, Wednesday 25 October 2023.
