Photographer's Note

It has just gone noon on a lovely winter's day. People are relaxing and just enjoying the view of the Esperance Jetty and the clear waters of The Great Australian Bight.

The 670 metre wooden tanker jetty was opened in 1935 and is one of only four timber jetties in Western Australia that remain intact. The curved jetty was used to ship grain and minerals from the region and was also used to transport oil to the goldfields. Rail tracks and oil pipelines ran along the length of the jetty.
Following the construction of the Esperance Port, the tanker jetty fell out of use and the last ship unloaded fuel there in 1977.
