A delightful scenic place for a picnic/BBQ along the Western Port Coastline is at Warneet North Jetty. A jetty that was built in 1956 which is closed due to structural damage. There have been petitions to save the jetty. With teddy bears hanging off the fenced off area and in the lovely little shed at the base of the jetty. It doesn’t take long to realise the passion this little coastal town has for the North Jetty.
The surrounding area is beautiful. With picnic tables and BBQ’s it’s a scenic place to have lunch or dinner with family and friends.
After you’ve had a bite to eat, why not stroll along the 1.2km Warneet Coastal Track to take in the serenity of the area. Stroll along the winding path that hugs the coast and takes you up close to the mangroves. On our visit the wattle trees were just starting to flower adding to the charm of this lovely walk.
For those wanting to fish from a jetty there is the nearby Warneet South Jetty which can be reached by walking a short distance along the Coastal Track. To find out more about what Warneet has to offer and the Warneet coastal track click on the Warneet link.
