Peterborough Foreshore

Peterborough Foreshore

The car park to the south of town offers views looking east across the wreck sites of the Schomberg and the Newfield. Interpretive signs bring to life the stories of local shipwrecks and the stories surrounding them.

Dolphins can often be observed herding salmon in the inshore gutters at the eastern end of the beach and are a good indicator of when fishing conditions are right.

Length: Visible by car
Time: 15 minutes
