This eerily pretty Port Melbourne pier was built in 1915 and, until 1969, was a major arrival point for new migrants. It was originally known as the New Railway Pier, until being renamed Princes Pier after a visit from Edward VIII – then Prince of Wales – in 1920. The 580-metre driftwood dock, now a collection of picturesque stumps, is part pier, part open-air museum and is at its most stunning at sunrise or sunset.
