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.

Frankston Pier

  
The 500 metre Frankston Pier is a local landmark of the suburb. Originally built in 1857, it has been both extended as well as repaired a number of times over the years. There is an artificial reef within casting distance of the pier that is home to a wide variety of fish.

Near Frankston Pier is the arched pedestrian bridge over the mouth of Kananook Creek and a boardwalk that meanders along the beach.

Public boat berthing is available on Frankston Pier for up to 48 hours at a time (vessels should be attended). Other restrictions are detailed on Parks Victoria signs.
