The metal human figures give the old, rotting wharf a bit of character, but this sight will not delay you long. Take a photo and move on.

One of Thames historical landmarks from the gold mining and pioneer settlement days. Large ships used to ferry goods and passengers in and out at this wharf. Good spot for photos!

Suprised to say this is a 'tourist attraction' but it is part of Thames history and I love history. Its a shame it has not been restored and so be usable to go fishing from. There is 2 metal characters on it which give it a bit of charm. The sign about it tells you what it was used for.... More

Facinating Old Relic of a Wharf which was a $66.000 harbour scheme of the 1920's but according to the sign here the harbour silted up and it fell into disuse. Lovely place to photograph a good sunset.
