Establishment The Geelong Harbor Trust Commission was established under the provisions of the Geelong Harbor Trust Act 1905 (No.2012). Under the provisions of the Port of Geelong Authority Act 1981 (No.9658), the Commission was reconstituted as the Port of Geelong Authority (PGA) from 1981. The reconstitution did not reflect a change in function, but rather represented an attempt to follow modern practice with respect to the naming of organisations responsible for the operations of ports throughout the world. The PGA was responsible for the management and regulation of activities at the port at Geelong and within Corio Bay and the outer harbour of Geelong.
