RvTrips' review

05 Mar 2016

One Mile Jetty was built in 1897 to aid in transport of wool and livestock from Carnarvon to Fremantle. This jetty expanded over the next few years to cater for the increase in traffic. Of course the jetty is no longer used but is listed with state and national heritage trusts and is being preserved by local groups.

We had coffee at the Jetty Cafe before setting off on our walk along this old wooden structure (great friendly staff and views of the water). A small fee is charged to walk the jetty and this money goes towards the upkeep. This jetty stretches for about 1493 metres and if you would prefer not to walk you can catch the Coffee Pot Train which is very popular with the children. The wood is quite weathered in spots and you need to tread carefully - the signs advice people to wear comfortable, flat shoes. 

While walking along One Mile Jetty we saw a very large turtle coming up for breath and a huge crab - as big as a dinner plate. Several people were fishing from various spots along the jetty as the pylons have created artificial reefs attracting a variety of marine life.

I suggest you head up to the viewing platform behind the Jetty Cafe that has been created form an old water tower - great 360 degree views of Carnarvon and the ocean which is well worth the climb. There are several museums to look at but these were closed on the day we visited.
