You can keep your print inside this tube to protect it until you decide to frame or mount the image. Take the print to your framer of choice. Care needs to be taken when unrolling the print, be careful not to scratch the printed surface. It is recommended that you only check your print once upon receiving your order, and then return the print to the tube.

    All canvas prints are printed by Fotofast in Brisbane. As all canvas prints are handmade items, the end result can differ greatly, it takes years of experience to print and manufacture high quality canvas art. The Fotofast team is lead by their very own fine arts graduate who understands our needs.

    Canvas Wrap Choices: The default canvas wrapping features a back edge, however a white edge and mirror wrapping is also available. We will contact you to discuss options upon placing your order.

    About the Coffs Harbour Jetty

    In the year 1890, after much consultation among the leaders of the town and Government at the time, the construction of the Jetty began. A vast collection of piles and timber had been assembled in readiness for the work, and this had all been obtained locally and sawn in readiness at the sawmill owned by John Mills, the district’s first sawmiller, at a spot nearby where the Vacuum Oil Company’s depot now stands. During the next three years until 1893, work continued unceasingly (except for bad weather) until the jetty extended from the shore 1080 feet out into the harbour towards the southern tip of Mutton Bird Island.

    Disaster was associated with the building of the jetty on more than one occasion and the work was not finished without a few disappointments. One particularly violent and severe storm struck the harbour during the construction of the jetty and destroyed six complete bays, which took much extra work to repair and replace so that the work could continue.

    The jetty was completed in 1893.
