About Port Phillip Bay and Sailing in Melbourne
Historically, the expanse of water named Port Phillip Bay was the motivation for a number of settlements that took place from the 1830s. The ports around the Bay boomed in the 20th century and made it the country’s most important port.
Taking to the water in Melbourne provides a fresh perspective on this water-based city. Melbourne has a privileged location on Australia’s largest bay and busiest port; Port Phillip Bay.
However, it is in fact not officially a bay, but an area of water comprised of 16 smaller bays.
