Piers & Jetties

Walk the planks, stroll a jetty

With water on three sides of the Mornington Peninsula there are piers and jetties scattered along both the western and eastern coastlines. Some of these structures are made of wood, others more modern alongside marinas and yacht moorings. There is even on with an underwater snorkelling trail at the Rye Pier.

The annual spider crab migration occurs in  autumn where thousands of these crustaceans cover the sandy bay floor and are easily visible for snorkellers around the pier at Rye. Fishing is allowed at most of the piers, and these waters are bountiful indeed. Top Tip: Make sure to have your own fishing licence if you are an adult - you can purchase one from the Mornington Peninsula Visitor Information Centre in Dromana.

Dromana Pier

Taking a stroll out onto the 200 metre Dromana pier and looking back towards Arthur's Seat with the bathing boxes and beach in the foreground is a picture perfect view. Fishing from the pier is also very popular. The adjacent calm, sandy beaches provide safe swimming and boating opportunities, and the Dromana foreshore reserve lines the coast and consists of grassy picnic areas, children's playground, shelters and walking tracks.
The Dromana Pier is situated opposite the main shopping area and Pier Street, Dromana. Carparking is available beside the pier and along Point Nepean Road.
