Triabunna is a relaxing fishing village surrounding the sheltered harbour of Spring Bay. The town has a range of shopping facilities and is the base for many crayfish and fishing boats. The Maria Island ferry departs from Triabunna. Visitor Centre in Charles Street, Phone (03) 6257 4772
Settled in the 1820s, Triabunna has traditionally been a centre for small industries. Some blossomed then died out: whaling stations, sandstone quarries, tramways, military garrison, and the southern hemisphere’s largest apple orchard. The woodchip plant closed in 2012.
Berths: Alongside the newly extended town jetty costs $35/ day, $125 week, includes town water and power, diesel available. Triabunna also has new floating marinas. All the berths are taken bar 2 x 10 m berths, but Harbour Master Gary Laredo 0422808166 manages to accommodate all visitors.
There is a visitor’s information centre near the marina that has showers paid by coins.
The port also has a four lane public boat ramp with car & trailer parking.
MAST has also installed two cruising moorings at East Shelly Beach at Orford.
