Carnarvon Heritage Precinct

Carnarvon Heritage Precinct WA is located at the original port of Carnarvon and was first developed in 1897 with the installation of a lighthouse and jetty. At Carnarvon Heritage Precinct enjoy the jetty walk, Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage Museum and the Carnarvon Tramway.

One Mile Jetty

When at Carnarvon Heritage Precinct WA walk or take the Coffee Pot train along the historical One Mile Jetty. Take in the Gascoyne river mouth, mangrove and marine life and migrating birds. The jetty is also renowned for its great fishing.

Tramway & Town Walk Trail

This three kilometres long walk trail takes in the Tramway Bridge, Olivia Terrace in Carnarvon town centre, the Precinct railway line and One Mile Jetty and includes interpretive signage of the region's flora and fauna.

The Tramway Bridge, which crosses the south arm of the Gascoyne River was constructed during the 1900s to transport goods between the port of Carnarvon and town centre. The last of the steam trains to operate in the north of the State, the 'Kimberley' was saved and restored at the Carnarvon Heritage Precinct and is open for inspection.  The kiosk and Coffee Pot train operate everyday from April-November (weekends between December and March).

Precinct Museums

Step back in time to the early 1900s. Take a walk down memory lane at the Lighthouse Keepers Cottage Museum.  The Railway Museum is home to the fully restored Kimberley Steam train that operated in the 1950's between the Jetty and Carnarvon town. Also situated in the Railway Museum is the Shearing Hall of Fame and a lifeboat from the Kormoran that sunk off the coast during World War II. Enjoy a coffee or ice cream at the Guards van kiosk open daily from 9am to 5pm April-November.
