Port Germein Jetty

Landmark in Port Pirie

Around 27km north of Port Pirie, little Port Germein (population 370) is famous for it's enormous timber jetty. It was built in 1881 to enable large wheat-carrying ships to dock in these shallow waters, and jags an impressive 1532m out into the Spencer Gulf. It was orginally 1680m long, but storm damage over the years has truncated it. Fancy a stroll?
