No major changes but I think the old perches have been replaced by buoys.

I reviewed these notes in July 2021. Melfort pier hasn't laid on as much this year due to the isolation rule and there's not much of the "season" left that far North, Kimelford yacht haven is thriving and have a new small cafe on sight for snacks and light lunches. They have changed their price structure a bit.
Update Spring 2019

These notes were reviewed in May 2019. Pricing at the yacht haven has changed and we've updated the charts.
