ABOUT Ponyfish Island
Hidden CBD Bars

When three urban explorers stumbled across a no-man's land in the heart of the Yarra, they knew they had discovered something special. Surrounded by water on all sides, Ponyfish Island is a haven for wonderers and wanderers looking for that perfect hidden Melbourne bar.

The island can be found floating under the Pedestrian Bridge, Southbank, and is only accessible from stairs descending from above. With thoughtful bites to discover and drinks to savour, Ponyfish Island will become a destination for those who are hungry for something new.

Adorned with specimens and diagrams of exotic flora and fauna - both real and imagined - the venue is a tribute to explorers and discoverers of all kinds.

The island takes its name from the elusive Ponyfish, a mysterious creature apparently seen swimming in the Yarra River. Much debate has been roused as to whether the Ponyfish actually exists or if the creature is simply a fabrication created by those who wish to believe.

Ponyfish Island is welcoming explorers now. Let the adventure begin...
