14 Lorne Pier in Lorne on Great Ocean Road, Australia

Lorne Pier jets out into Louttit Bay, named after Captain Louttit. His schooner Will Watch was forced into these waters during a huge storm in 1841. Eight years later, the first settler arrived. The logger William Lindsay called the surrounding area Louttit Bay until the township was renamed Lorne in 1871. As the timber industry grew, a pier was built in 1879 to accommodate ships. Soon cranes were added to service an influx of fishing boats. Much of that activity has dissipated. But you can hook salmon, barracuda and squid by tossing a line off this pier built in 2007. Or if you want a guaranteed fresh catch, order seafood at the Lorne Pier Restaurant.
