Long Description:
The Beachport Jetty extends over the waters of Rivoli Bay , originally over 1.2kms in length, now the jetty stands at 772 metres. Construction of the Jetty was commenced in 1878, but owing to many problems with the contractors and Government Architect, the Jetty was not completed until 1882. The jetty was the terminus of the railway line from Mt Gambier that used to run the length of the jetty carrying wool and grain for export.
Anglers come here to fish off the side of the jetty and often fishermen go home with Mullet, Salmon, Whiting and Mulloway.
