Flinders Jetty (Flinders Jetty, The Waters of Western Port Bay)

Flinders Jetty is located at the point where Western Port meets Bass Strait and has great views across Western Port to Phillip Island. The jetty is currently utilised for promenading, recreational fishing, diving, and swimming and also serves as a base for commercial aquaculture and fishing activities.

This area is popular for sailing, fishing, and other water sports. Nearby Bass Park offers barbeques, walking trails and a playground.

Flinders Jetty is an iconic Victorian dive site and is arguably the easiest place in the world to find one of Australia’s most iconic marine creatures, the Weedy Sea dragons and a wide range of marine fauna can be found here.

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.

Flinders Pier - partial closure

A 180 meter timber section of Flinders Pier (Jetty) is closed due to deterioration. The full length of the pier can still be accessed via the duplicated concrete section which is alongside the closed timber section.
