Queenscliff Pier

Description : Staying in Queenscliff enjoying the beautiful ocean walks past this iconic pier. It is eye catching as is the wonderful array of colour that changes with each day. The Queenscliff pier was built in 1884 and was called the ‘Steamer Pier’ as it catered for steamboat use for passengers and carriage of goods. The Lifeboat Shed was constructed between 1926-29 and included a slipway with roller, channel, keelway and cradle to store the Queenscliff Lifeboat, and relocated to the current site in 1946. This lifeboat was in service for approximately 50 years, and attended many calls for assistance, including the search for Prime Minister Harold Holt in 1967. The Pier Lifeboat Shed and Waiting Shed were added to the Victorian Heritage Register in 1982 as a symbol of both historical and architectural significance to Victoria, as a rare example of timber pier structures - with few remaining in Victoria. The pier has featured in many films and television shows over the years, including the popular Miss Fishers Murder Mysteries.
