Griffiths Street Bridge and Port of Port Fairy Masterplan
The Port of Port Fairy Master Plan is a shovel ready project that has undergone extensive community consultation. The proposal presents significant economic benefits to the Shire in both the construction phase and afterwards through increased tourism and improved conditions for recreational and commercial fishers.
The project would not only make the Port of Port Fairy more reputable, sustainable and functional. If implemented, the masterplan would maximise the use of the port, conserve heritage features, improve access for boat owners and improve the amenity for locals and tourists.
The Port of Port Fairy is much of the reason 600,000 people visited Moyne Shire in 2019, attracting $135 million to the local economy. As it stands, demand for berths at the Port is high, with a long waiting list of applicants. Developing the Port would not only increase the number of berths for commercial and recreational users; it would also allow for the berthing of the new Marine Rescue Vessel.
