Carnarvon One Mile Jetty

One Mile Jetty The Carnarvon One Mile Jetty was built in 1897 which allowed wool and livestock produced in the region to be shipped to Fremantle for markets and for essential goods for the town to be imported in via state shipping which occurred on average twice a week. In 1904 the head of the Jetty was added and in 1912 the jetty head was further widened because of increasing use and traffic, including the arrival and departure of passengers. The jetty transport system & trains ceased in 1966 when state ships stopped using the port and the road leading into town from the South was sealed. The One Mile Jetty is the longest jetty in the North of Western Australia and is listed with both State and National Heritage Trusts. The jetty is open to the public every day for people wanting to walk the jetty, throw in a fishing line or sit back and enjoy a trip on the Coffee Pot train which runs along the length of the Jetty.
