Travel down to waterfront, past Prices historical foundry building, over a couple of judder bars and park close to the road edge as possible. Walk up the stop bank, and the remains of this historical wharf are before you. The railway trains also used to go onto this wharf, for many decades it was the main way in and out... More

I do this walk to cool off and make me relax. I love the atmosphere and being so close to the shore. I also love watching (and photographing) the local Tern colony that lives here. To be honest they are one of the main reasons I love it!

Sunrise and full tide can be a good combination at the interesting old wharf. Great action with the terns as well

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
