Beacon Cove is located 10 minutes out
of Melbourne's CBD on Port Phillip Bay.
In the heart of this new estate is Beacon
Cove Foodstore. Opposite the Foodstore is Station Pier
where the Spirit of Tasmania docks regularly to take
passengers across the Tasman Sea to Launceston, Tasmania.
Port Melbourne, one of Victoria's oldest
suburbs, is right next door. Station Pier was originally
built in the 1930's to accommodate the ships coming
in from Europe and America. Thousands of people have
travelled through this area on their way to starting
a new life in Australia.
Luxurious Liners dock at Station Pier
frequently between November and February, to check when
the next international Liner is due visit www.portsofmelb.com.
Most settled closer inland and the area
around the Pier lay unused over the years as newer and
larger ports were built. Recently, Mirvac Developers
have turned this area into lovely seafront properties
At Beacon Cove Foodstore, breakfast
