About this collection

In 2015, the Wyong community was asked to share their memories of Long Jetty to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first build of the Jetty. This is a selection of some of the images that were submitted. 

The original Long Jetty was built in December 1914 by William Henry Price. The jetty was constructed from the trunks of paperbark trees and was 1152 feet long. This length was intended so that the jetty could reach the deep water in the middle of Tuggerah Lakes. Originally, Henry built the jetty to service his own estate, but in 1915 it came into public use as a means of transporting people from in-land Wyong.

2015 marks 100 years since the jetty was originally used by the public, becoming a cornerstone of the community. Historically, it was a tourist destination and while it remains an attraction to this day, local residents are its biggest fan-base now.
