“Extending far into the deep water of Tolaga Bay, this wharf is a legendary place to dangle a fishing line.”
Before or after the Cook’s Cove walk, a stroll to the end of the historic Tolaga Bay Wharf, the longest in the Southern Hemisphere, is an absolute must.
Built in the 1920s, ships docked at the wharf to deliver supplies and collect meat, wool and livestock from the farms in the district. The last ship called in 1966 after which the structure fell into disrepair.
The wharf is still standing today thanks to the outstanding efforts of fundraisers who could not bear to watch it crumble into the sea. The 660m-long wharf is a stunning sight stretching far into the sparkling blue-green sea against a backdrop of the steep white cliffs.
You will see locals and tourists fishing or jumping off the end of the jetty, hooting with glee as they hit the water. If you are lucky, Verity’s food caravan, the Curbside Café, will be parked on the beach front selling gourmet street food including the world's best burgers.
