The Wharf was built in 1902 to accompany the growing agricultural trade throughout the South Coast. Used to transport people and goods up and down the coast until 1952 , the service eventually came to an end with road travel taking over. Once decommissioned, it became a central hub for recreational activity - especially fishing.
On the far left side there is a nice weed bed down among the stones within casting distance.
Or cast to about 4-5 metres from the right side.
Great for squid in the cooler months, the best time for fishing at the wharf is half an hour before sunset with the dominate fish species being bream, flathead, snapper, tailor, squid, gummy shark & whiting.
Even if you're not into fishing the wharf is a great spot to visit and peer down into the water and out to sea and for whale watching with whales often quite close during the season. You'll also find Merimbula Aquarium and Wharf Restaurant overlooking the Wharf, open 7 days.
