Stella Maris – Port Adelaide

About Us

Stella Maris – Port Adelaide had its beginning under

Father James Tuohy at Saint Joseph’s Orphanage,

Largs Bay.


The next location was the

British Sailors’ Society in Port Adelaide.

It then moved to the

Yongala Street Community Centre at Taperoo.


In 2006, Stella Maris moved to our present location.

The Stella Maris Port Adelaide Seafarers Centre

(Formerly Apostleship of the Sea) is located at

441 Victoria Rd, Taperoo, South Australia.

We are a caring and Christian society made up of

non-paid volunteers aligned to the Catholic Church, offering pastoral care, services and support for visiting seafarers irrespective of race, colour or creed.


Our centre at Taperoo will be closed from Christmas Eve to New Year's Day (24/12/22 - 1/1/23), reopening on Monday 2nd January.
