Cowes to Stony Point Car Ferry

Last updated: 9 June 2022

Council will not be completing a feasibility study to investigate the suitability of the Cowes Jetty as the docking point for a car ferry between Phillip Island and Stony Point. We believe that for this project to be successful the State Government is best placed to lead any future work on this project, including this feasibility study. We consider Local Government Authorities as stakeholders in any future development of the Cowes to Stony Point Ferry project.

The Cowes to Stony Point ferry project obtained funding through the State Government’s Enabling Tourism Fund Targeted Round. Our formal position on the project is ‘in principle support’ for a car ferry between Cowes and Stony Point. We maintain our commitment to the responsible delivery of public infrastructure, which is supported by our strategic ten-year capital works program that outlines key projects that will be prioritised for delivery.
