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.

Mornington Pier

Mornington Pier is a popular destination for a range of recreational activities including sightseeing, fishing and scuba diving. It is also home to fishing charters and provides a safe berth for the yachts in the Marina.

A stroll on the pier soaking up the bay views and watching the fishermen try their luck is a very relaxing way to spend your time. You can also take in all the views there is to offer at the seafood restaurant and café on the pier.
Boat hire, shops and eateries are just a short walk from the pier.
Parking and facilities are available in the vicinity of Schnapper Point Park.
