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.
