It's a quirky little pier, much narrower than others around Hobson's Bay, with an interesting curve to it. Great for snorkelling.
Lagoon Pier was named because of the lagoon that ran a considerable way into Port Melbourne. It was gradually filled in by 1929. It's now a reserve (Lagoon Reserve and Edwards Reserve) and its extent is delineated by Esplanade East and Esplanade West.
Lagoon Pier was used by the Royal Australian Navy during WW2 as the Naval establishment HMAS Lonsdale (1 Beach Street) was located adjacent. HMAS Lonsdale was a naval training base built over the former lagoon. The base was decommissioned in the 1990s and the site is the high rise apartments.
