This is an old working pier that has been restored and is now used for recreational purposes. The end of the restoration project looks out over hundreds of old stumps called 'The Pins'. There are also excellent views towards the current working Pier (StationPier) where cruise liners and the Spirit of Tasmania docks. This view is best captured at dawn.
