Black Rock Jetty


Black Rock Jetty

Black Rock Jetty provides a boat ramp and jetty walkway for visitors. A popular spot for fishing and boating, and used regularly by the Surf Life Saving Club. The boat ramp and jetty at Half Moon Bay are one of the busiest locations in Port Phillip Bay. The jetty provides year round access to a good variety of fish species.

Site amenities include Public toilets which are located a short distance from the jetty, car parking (which can often be a rarity in the busier months) and a fish and chip shop with restaurant located nearby.

Not too far from the shore lies the HMVS Cerberus: a 1870s battleship that was scuttled in the bay in 1926 to create a breakwater for the Black Rock Yacht Club. Named for its crescent shape, Half Moon bay is protected from weather and is popular for boating, but is equally perfect for swimming in calm waters.
Jumping and diving off the jetty and other structures is prohibited for public safety. There are shallow areas and often unexpected submerged objects
Ensure dogs are kept on lead at all times and clean up after your dog.
