And to stay with the theme of local provenance we suggest you accompany your meal with a Newton's Ridge Estate Wine or a craft beer from Sow and Piglets Brewery brewed fresh in the heart of town.

Port Campbell Jetty

Port Campbell’s weathered jetty juts defiantly into the bay, dwarfed by limestone cliffs and frequently by waves on the offshore reef. 

The jetty provides an ideal platform to watch the world go by, let the swell beneath your feet carry away your cares and fall into the relaxed easy sway of our village by the sea.

Is this the most spectacular setting for an ocean jetty on the planet? A crane on the iconic structure lowers the small fishing fleet directly into the Southern Ocean, delivering from the ocean to your plate in a matter of hours. Feeling lucky? Why not throw in a line for a chance to catch Trevally, Australian Salmon or even Squid for the freshest of Calamari.
