Once upon a time there was a beautiful little jetty on St Kilda Beach. Built over a hundred years ago, Brookes Jetty was beloved by locals and visitors alike. It was a favourite place to walk out over the sea, reconnect with nature, picnic and swim, propose or get married, scatter ashes, meditate and daydream. With its unique western aspect, it was a vantage point for viewing the sunset, the bay, St Kilda Beach, and the moon rising over Luna Park.
Flanked by the Burley Griffin pillars, Brookes Jetty formed a natural entry point to the bay at the end of a promenade from Acland St. Punctuating the beach between the pier and the marina, Brookes Jetty was an integral part of the landscape of Melbourne’s most visited beach.
Our campaign to have it brought back is making real progress. Join us! For more information, or to donate, go to:
