|This jetty's history is contained in its name: originally, vessels plying from Melbourne to the Lakes before the opening of a permanent entrance at Lakes Entrance, often could not enter the Lakes and instead anchored off shore in Bass Strait and rowed their passengers and cargo ashore. Steamers from Sale and Bairnsdale met the passengers at this jetty. Remains of the original jetty can still be seen.|
Today, it is one of the most beautiful places on the Lakes - perfect for overnight mooring, swimming, fishing and watching the sunsets and birdlife. There are two walking tracks over to the Ninety Mile Beach, and it makes a lovely walk from here to Ocean Grange and back.
Opposite the jetty, there's a manual sewage pumpout barge.
