Buses to The Mission to Seafarers Victoria
Getting around from ship to our shore can be a little foreign to many short-term visitors working the cargo and docks, so The Mission has a bus service to help with the logistics.
Seafarers can arrange a bus from the docks by calling the Mission on:
Melbourne Flying Angel Club – Ph: (03) 9629 7083
Geelong Flying Angel Club – Ph: (03) 5278 6985
Hastings Flying Angel Club – Ph: (03) 5979 4327
Portland Flying Angel Club – Ph: (03) 5523 2776
The Mission to Seafarers Victoria (MtSV) ship visiting team go on board to offer a warm welcome and whatever help is needed. This can range from enabling a telephone call or email home, having a chat, to offering comfort and assisting in cases of injustice and distress.
Services can be conducted onboard upon request.
Volunteers and the Mission to Seafarers Chaplain carry out these visits. You can volunteer to become a Ship’s Visitor by contacting us or filling out our volunteer form here.

The Mission to Seafarers Library
In our lending library you will find books that have seen travel, a turn of whose pages give off the faint whiff of salt air, as well as delightfully kept editions of classics and more obscure tomes.
Borrow a book and curl up for a few hours.
Leave a book if you can, someone will be thankful for it.
