Going forward into history. The Precinct was the original Port of Carnarvon, which comprised the One Mile Jetty, Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage, Lighthouse and the Carnarvon Tramway. Come and enjoy a Jetty Walk, Ride the Coffee Pot Train $10 per Adult, Explore the Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage Museum, Visit the One Mile Jetty Interpretive Centre, Wander the Railway Station Museum and the meander along one or all of the walktrails.

As the jetty was closed we went to the lighthouse keepers cottage, what a lovely place. Well furnished as it would have been and the volunteers are so knowledgeable. A delightful place.

This was a great walk through history, to see how the lighthouse keeper and his family lived. This is worth the time to admire and understand

The Carnarvon Heritage Precinct is a great museum area with lots of information about the area and its history. Check out the Lighthouse, the Train Museum and the jetty. Good place for a wander.

This little gem is amazing. We we're given a tour & everything was explained very well. It's a donation entrance fee, only a small place but packed with information. Definitely worth a stop

Next to the mile long jetty it is open 9-1 and it is a delightful little museum tastefully laid out; a real piece of Carnarvon history. We were lucky enough to have a long conversation with the last lighthouse keeper's daughter. It was fascinating listening...More

The fascine, newly revamped, is a beautiful setting for Carnarvon. There is always something different to see - boats, the water under different conditions - and it's free!

We visited this area as it is where the mile train is. The old lighthouse is small so it is not something you will see from a distance. The small museum is well worth a walk through, with many olden day things. Lots of old...More
