Hastings Pier (aka Hastings Jetty) is located on a crescent-shaped bay opening onto Western Port on the Mornington Peninsula. It is protected from prevailing winds.

Located off Skinner Steet, Hastings Pier provides many opportunities for diving and snorkelling. Hastings Pier was built for fishing, and its iconic 1866 fishing shed still stands proudly on the sand at the start of the pier.

Best at high tide, those who are keen could expect to see a variety of fish including King George whiting, Australian salmon, silver trevally and flathead. Public toilets are not far from the car park at the base of the pier.

The Red Bird shipwreck is located about 280 metres east of Hastings Pier. The steam tug Red Bird broke free from its moorings in the 1940s and ended up on a sandbank. It was abandoned. Early pictures show it sitting beached and mostly submerged on the sandbank. Now it has been all but consumed by the sandbank.

Boon Wurrung / Bunurong country

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Boon Wurrung / Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation. This truly ancient Country includes parts of Port Phillip, from the Werribee River in the north-west, down to Wilson's Promontory in the south-east, including the Mornington Peninsula, French Island and Phillip Island, plus Western Port. We wish to acknowledge the Boon Wurrung as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging. We acknowledge Bunjil the Creator Spirit of this beautiful land, who travels as an eagle, and Waarn, who protects the waterways and travels as a crow, and thank them for continuing to watch over this Country today and beyond.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
