In order to make the most of your day out, here’s our advice on things to bring and be aware of!


Parking is available at Westhaven, at a cost of $20.

$20 covers 24 hours, paying anything less will not cover the duration of the fishing trip and will result in you being towed.

Please pay careful attention to car parking signs as you will need to park within the yellow lines.

If the Z-Pier carpark is full, consider using nearby facilities in Jellicoe Street, Victoria Park Market, or surrounding suburbs, and allow approximately 10-15 minutes for walking time. You can walk to Z-Pier from St Mary’s Bay via the Jacob’s Ladder foot bridge.


Sun Protection

Over the course of the day you will be exposed to the sun more than normal, please bring appropriate sun wear including hats, sun glasses and sunscreen.



We recommend bringing a jacket/wind breaker for most conditions. Even on nice days, the wind can be stronger out on the water.



Please bring covered footwear. With hooks, anchors and occasional slippery surface, we advice brining appropriate footwear.

Rods and Bait

Rods, ice and bait can be hired in advance, alternatively you are welcome to bring your own.
