In the picturesque quaint coastal village of Warneet you’ll find the Warneet South Jetty. A place where fishermen meet to throw in their lines or head off on their boat. On our visit the fishermen were catching salmon and mullet. It was great to watch them reeling in their catch. Part of the jetty has been closed due to structural safety concerns, due to this pedestrians and vessel berthing is not allowed at the head of the jetty.
From the relatively long jetty you get a lovely view of the nearby mangroves that line the coast and sandy beach. Fishing boats can be seen bobbing up and down as your eyes gaze around.
Due to strong currents, swimming, diving or jumping from the jetty is not allowed.
Beside the jetty is a boat launching area, kiosk and boat hire. Unfortunately on our visit the kiosk and boat hire place was closed. Ensure you check it’s open to avoid disappointment when planning your visit.
Standing from the sandy beach and along the Warneet Coastal Track you get scenic views of the Warneet South Jetty. A great place for photographers. The area is also good for bird watchers with 20,000 birds migrating to the area in summer.
