Our Staff & Crew

Our mission is “To provide on-shore facilities, practical welfare services and spiritual support to seafarers visiting the Port of Melbourne.”

Our vision is “To be a pre-eminent maritime centre; responding to the unique circumstances of the seafaring community and an exemplary place of maritime heritage that encourages community, connectivity and social engagement at all levels.”

It takes a wonderfully dedicated staff and crew to offer this practical and enduring service day-after-day, year-in-year-out.
