Port Campbell Jetty

An attraction in its own right! Port Campbell’s weathered jetty juts defiantly into the bay, dwarfed by limestone cliffs and frequently by waves on the offshore reef.

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.

The jetty provides an ideal platform to watch the world go by, let the swell beneath your feet carry away your cares! Steal a kiss from a loved one, tell your kids you love them or plan an alfresco snack to remember.

Breathe deep: watch a southern ocean swell lick its way along the cliff-line before expending itself in a sigh upon the sandy shore. Exhale: fall into the relaxed easy sway of our village by the sea!

  • Length: 100m from nearest parking options
