Bass Island Line schedule change

Bass Island Line has revised its weekly schedule of the John Duigan to respond to increasing customer demand between King Island and Victoria.

Commencing January 2020, as a result of infrastructure availability, John Duigan will be changing its mainland Tasmania port of call from Devonport to Bell Bay.

After the summer season, John Duigan will be calling at Bell Bay once every three weeks. This call will be subject to customer demand.

John Duigan will continue to complete an additional voyage each fortnight between King Island and Victoria.

Bass Island Line will regularly review operations in line with demand and will ensure regular communication with customers.
