Melfort Pier
Melfort Pier
When constructed early in the 19th century this was known as Fearnach Pier. The water here was deep enough to enable deliveries of the raw materials that were needed for the manufacture of gunpowder at the nearby Melfort Estate and to distribute the finished product. A tramway connected the pier with the gunpowder works.

In recent years, Melfort Pier has been used for leisure-based activities, including yachting, wind-surfing and fishing.
