  • A section of the Mornington Pier is closed for public safety until further notice due to storm damage. The majority of the pier remains accessible to visitors, including the lower landing. at Mornington Pier and Jetty, Monday 16 April, 2018
  • One of the piles from Altona Pier has been dislodged. This pile had been located between cross-heads and its removal does not impact the load-bearing capacity of the pier. Altona Pier is structurally safe and remains open for pedestrian use. at Altona Pier, Thursday 11 January, 2018
  • Due to storm damage the water under and around the pier is closed to diving and swimming. Following minor works to the jetty structure the upper deck and low landing of the pier are now open allowing for pedestrian and fishing access. Parks Victoria is continuing to progress the planning for future storm recovery works associated with the pier wave screens. at Mornington Pier and Jetty, Thursday 2 November, 2017
  • A section of Kerferd Road Pier is in very poor condition and has been deemed unsafe for ongoing use in its current condition. The outer 125m section of pier will be closed to the public from Wednesday 1 November 2017 until further notice. Kerferd Road Pier is a heritage structure and will be restored appropriately. at Kerferd Road and Lagoon Piers, Wednesday 1 November, 2017

The piers and jetties of Port Phillip are popular destinations for a range of recreational activities including short walks, sightseeing, fishing, swimming, snorkelling and SCUBA diving.

These structures that connect the land to the sea are home to a fascinating and diverse range of marine plants and animals, waiting to greet those visitors willing to venture beneath the waves. 

Some activities may be restricted in some areas so please check signs at individual locations.

Take a relaxing sunset stroll, say hello to a seahorse or drop a line and catch a fish for dinner. Plan your visit to a pier or jetty today.
