Plenty of fish in the Sea !
For those wanting to wet a line and go fishing Port Victoria boasts a 200m long town Jetty that was originally built in 1877 and used to be a thriving port for the export of grain to England. The pristine waters of the Spencer Gulf around and beyond Wardang Island are renowned for its great catches of King George Whiting, this area offers fantastic boat and jetty fishing with excellent catches of Whiting, Snapper*, Squid, Tommy Ruffs, Mullet and Garfish.
*The taking of Snapper is currently restricted until 31 January 2023.
For the boaties, the Port Victoria boat ramp provides pontoon launching facilities with a large breakwater as protection.
There is a daily $6.00 launching fee payable through a district council ticket machine at the ramp which takes coins, simply display the ticket on your vehicle dashboard. Tickets valid for 24 hours from time of purchase.
