Australind Jetty Reopens

Australind Jetty Reopens
21 Dec 2023

The new Australind Jetty reopened to the public.

The iconic Australind Jetty was officially reopened on Tuesday, 19 December 2023!

Extensive renovations on the Jetty began in February this year after the Cook Government invested $3 million to make the jetty safe and accessible once more. 

Completed works include: 

  • 52 tonnes of original timber distributed to local schools and community groups for recycling
  • Full replacement of two footbridges
  • Refurbishment of 32 timber piles by encasing them in concrete
  • Replenishment of rock armouring along the embankment
  • Construction of a new inclusion and disability access ramp. 

Minister for Water, Simone McGurk MLA presided over the official reopening ceremony, joined by Member for Collie-Preston Jodie Hanns MLA, Member for Murray-Wellington Robyn Clarke MLA and Shire President Michelle Campbell.

We thank the community for their patience throughout this process.
