Merimbula Wharf

Merimbula Wharf – South Coast NSW

Merimbula Wharf was built in 1902, to accommodate the growing agricultural trade throughout the South Coast of NSW. The wharf was used to transport people and goods up and down the coast until 1952 when the service came to an end.  Similar to the Tathra Wharf, once decommissioned, it became a central hub for recreational activity. And of course one of these is fishing.


Where is the Merimbula Wharf? – 6 minute drive from the heart of town. Drive through Main St which forms Lake St. Right at the end.

Boat Ramps – N/A

Where to Fish? On the far left side there is a nice weed bed down among the stones within casting distance.

The other good spot on that wharf is about 4-5 metres from the right side straight out. Let the jig go down as far as you dare and work it.

The wharf is great for squid in the cooler months. Best time is half an hour before sunset. After sunset the fluro oranges work well.

Dominate Fish Species – Bream, flathead, snapper, tailor, squid, gummy shark, whiting..
