the jetty has been shut for 18months and wont re-open untill at least the foreshore festival on Feb 3.

Even that looks doubtful now that the construction company, marine and civil has gone into administation.

Its been shut for a while but after the workers leave you just walk on and fish there during the night i went a month ago had a good fish caught squid herring and a few stingrays dunno what would be lurking around in the daytime

but yeah its open at night time i walked all the way up to the end and talked to about 30 locals along the way they just said the usual squid and baitfish...

in front of the Equinox has a barrier halfway along it too. Only those willing to get wet can get past it! No wonder people get the sh-ts & take things into their own hands.
