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.

Rosebud Pier

  
Rosebud Pier which is located opposite Jetty Road and extends about 300 metres into the water. The shipping channel comes in quite close to the end of the pier before heading out into the bay making every stroll along the pier interesting. Whether you are an experienced fisherman or just trying your luck, fishing is very popular from the pier.
There is a wonderful new all abilities playground suitable for toddlers to young teens, with a variety of play equipment to keep the children entertained from enclosed baby swings, junior slides and tunnels to net swings, rope climbing walls and a flying fox. This is a perfect spot for a family BBQ or picnic overlooking the safe swimming beach and pier.
Public berthing is available on Rosebud Pier for a maximum of 48 hours (vessels should be attended at all times). Other restrictions are detailed on Parks Victoria signage.
