North Beach Jetty is Back to its Best

02 November 2018

The North Beach Jetty is back to looking its best after the City recently carried out a complete refurbishment of the local landmark. The restoration works were prompted by an inspection of the 22 metre jetty following this year’s winter storms, which caused extensive damage to the decking.

The $120,000 restoration project included replacement of the entire wooden structure with seasoned jarrah and new stainless steel fixtures. These works have retained the original look and feel of the jetty and ensure that the popular lookout remains available to the community into the future.

Mayor Irwin said the jetty continued to be a popular North Beach destination for anglers dropping in a line or beachgoers taking in an incredible view.

“It’s a beautiful spot for locals and visitors,” Mayor Irwin said. “The history of the jetty dates back almost 100 years, but it’s hard to believe there was a time during that period when there was no jetty in North Beach.”

“Built in 1922 by the Perth Road Board, the original jetty remained a fixture in the area for more than 40 years, but severe winter storms damaged it so badly in the mid-1960s that it was demolished for safety reasons in 1965.”

“The City later rebuilt the jetty as a fishing platform in 1977 and I’m happy to say that after this year’s restoration works, it’s looking brilliant.”

The jetty is now open to the public for recreational fishing and can be booked for wedding photos by emailing or phoning the City’s Beach Services Booking Office on (08) 9205 7472.
