Port Welshpool Long Jetty
The original Port Welshpool 'Long Jetty' was constructed in 1938 to service Bass Strait maritime activity and the fledging oil & gas exploration industry. At 932 metres long it was one of the longest timber jetties in Australia and is unique in that it curves to align with the Port Welshpool navigation channel. Over time the condition of the jetty structure fell into disrepair and was eventually closed to the public in 2003. A fire in 2010 destroyed a large section of the jetty. In 2017 funding was secured for reconstruction and today Long Jetty is one of the longest in the southern hemisphere stretching out over 800 meters into the beautiful watres of Corner Inlet. Visitors can take a leisurely stroll along the jetty,enjoying stunning views of the coastline and watching boast come and go from the harbour.
