It was good to see but needs to be repaired for the community to help with tourism. evidently the government offered 3 years ago to fix it but the heritage people said no. its a pity as it does draw people to it.

What A Tragedy
Jan. 2021
It is such a tragedy that the One Mile Jetty has to be closed as it is no longer safe. If I were a local, I would be absolutely devastated. Surely, some rich mining /oil & gas tycoon could spare the monies needed with the government then maintaining the jetty with tourists charged a fee for using it just as in Busselton. Looking back at the pics of The Coffee Pot Train by previous reviewers makes me even sadder. The One Mile Jetty is a historical icon and there is no question that it has to be saved by all means.

It was still a surreal feeling being out there amongst the heritage buildings and remnants. We were in Carnarvon for 1 night each on the way to Coral Bay and then on the way back. The first night, we walked on the Mangrove Boardwalk to watch the sunset and had lunch at the cafe upon our return journey. We were utterly disappointed that the Heritage Precinct was closed on Mondays as we had hoped to visit the historical buildings before we made our way to Geraldton.

I am holding all hope that the One Mile Jetty will be saved.

Well worth a visit
Dec. 2020
Worth a trip just for a visit to the museum.
it is such a shame that a heritage treasure like this jetty is not receiving government funding for restoration.
that said, it is still worth a visit as there are 3 musuems there, a train museum, a lighthouse museum, and the actual jetty museum dealing with the story of HMS Sydney.
It was worth a visit just to chat to John who was entirely lovely, knowledgeable, and a real asset to both Carnarvon and the museum.

We enjoyed the old machinery on display. The cafe there is a bonus. A very relaxing outing. Good to see the area surrounding the town.

Mix of Museum and cafe
Sep. 2020
Well worth a visit, this place is a great way to learn about the history of this rural centre, divided into three parts, a well-designed museum, a fully restored house, and a great cafe, I had the Goat pie and my wife has grilled fish.

Closed.

Jetty is in disrepair and is closed, does not seem like much of a view from the jetty as it does not go that far out into the water (considerable amount is on land).

Amazingly Informative Interactive Centre
Jul. 2020
We knew the jetty was closed but wanted to visit the Interactive Centre. At the reception desk, we talked for quite some time to 'John' who manned the desk for the morning. He shared an enthusiastic and well-informed summary of everything we would see once we entered the exhibit.
After studying the Aboriginal art at the start, we continued on into the centre. Here, the information boards and photographs detailing the history of Carnarvon from early days to more recent times was very well presented and interesting. The stories of the hardships that early explorers and settlers endured set the stage for the way this area developed its agricultural significance. Then, reading through the heartbreaking stories about early treatment of the Indigenous population, filled in some of the gaps in our previous knowledge of the history of the area.
The highlight of our visit though, would have to be the account of the battle between HMAS Sydney II and the Kormoran. After reading the story boards and viewing the photos, we watched a movie that detailed the accounts of the battle, the sinking of the Sydney and the subsequent efforts over these many years to find the ship. This video combined interviews, photos, diary excerpts and other accounts to present a moving account of this historical event.
Thanks to all involved in the creation of this centre.
