Queenscliff Peir

Here you can see the old peir in the foreground. The first shed on the peir is the waiting shed that was built in 1887 for passengers that rode on the paddle steamers.
The other one is the boathouse which housed the Queenscliffe lifeboat from 1929/1976

In the back ground you can see the Black lighthouse and closer to the coast the white lighthouse.
When lined up these can be used by ships to negotiate the Rip.
