Mornington Pier was first built in the 1850's, providing a safe berth for steamships carrying holiday makers from Melbourne. It was was also a busy departure point for vessels carrying produce to the Melbourne markets before rail arrived in the early 1890's. Today the pier is a popular destination for a range of recreational activities including sightseeing, fishing and scuba diving. Several fishing boats still use the pier as loading off point, as this mussel boat seen here.
