Description

Start at the Cunningham Pier, opened in the mid 1850s for loading and unloading cargo, at the eastern end of Western Foreshore Rd. Notice the many colourful bollards, some of local characters, sprinkled along the foreshore. In between the Cunningham Pier and the Steampacket Gardens stands the famous floating Christmas tree at the seasonal end of the year. Pass The Carousel, which dates back to 1892, and the buoys on the foreshore imbedded in the ground near the Wharf Shed Café. Cross Yarra St where the famous Fishermen’s Pier Restaurant overlooks the bay and many sailing vessels in the marina. Keep travelling along the foreshore to Eastern Beach, the much-loved Art Deco masterpiece and favourite since opening in the late 1930s and fully restored in the 1990s. It is a great place to spend a warm, sunny day and very popular in summer.
