Berths & Moorings
Gippsland Ports manages approximately 1,000 berths and moorings across the five local ports. From time to time, sites become vacant and available to the public.
Opportunities for current vacancies are now available at: Port Albert; Mallacoota; Nicholson River; and Progress Jetty Paynesville.
Gippsland Ports maintains a waiting list that is allocated by reference to the oldest registration, providing the applicant has an appropriate sized vessel for the vacant site. This assessment considers length overall (LOA), beam and draught.
