Melbourne’s ferries have delivered significant social and economic benefit to our community in the past. Today ferries remain a woefully under-developed transport and tourism option. The opportunity to expand ferry services around this state and in this city is great. This potential needs to be unlocked – by government (local and state), by responsible authorities and by relevant private sector and non-profit stakeholders.Our Speaker on Maritime Heritage:

  • Bruce M. Gooley, researcher, writer and lively presenter

Our Expert Panel looking to the Future:

  • Matt McDonald, CEO, Port Phillip Ferries
  • Murray Rance, CEO. Port Phillip Ferries (Little Group)

  • Jamie Gillingham Senior Manager, Development Victoria
