Stanley Bay:

  • Due to work on the Downtown project and public space, Pier 3C/D services will be moving to Pier 1C from Monday 6 January.
  • In order to make sure the other ferry services can continue to operate safely and on time, we have had to withdraw the Stanley Bay ferry service from Monday 23 December 2019 until approximately the end of February. This is in addition to the regular Christmas and New Year break.
  • Bus route 806 (PDF 2.56MB) operates between Stanley Bay and Devonport Wharf to connect to the Devonport ferry service to Downtown, or customers have the option of booking a ride with AT Local
  • Ferry passengers at either stop 3450 (150 Calliope Road), or stop 3462 (Devonport by Wharf Entrance), will not need to tag on to the 806. 
  • The 15 or 45 past the hour peak ferry services from Downtown Ferry Terminal provide the best connection to the 806 bus service, which departs 5 minutes after the scheduled ferry arrival time.
  • The Stanley Bay service will resume when the first of the new berths on Queen’s Wharf West are completed, and will be confirmed nearer the time.
