“worth a visit. chew jetty has its charms”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Had some difficulty finding parking here as there's limited parking spaces.
It's sheltered walkway through the Chew Jetty, great escape from the afternoon heat.
There are some homes selling small souvenirs and i bought a t-shirt. People there are very friendly. You'll recognise some spots where TV drama scenes were taken.
Unfortunately, the wall art has faded when we were there.

“rundown”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Chew jetty was the longest but the jetty didnt feel like it had as much heritage attached as i had expected mainly due to all the majore modifications done to the original buildings.

“Clan Jetties”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

If you are down by the ferry area this is a really interesting place with a great insight into a different life style. Was surprised to see the parking area being inundated by the high tide

“It's a rundown place but makes you feel nostalgic”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

We made a trip to one of the Clan's jetty and it looks every aged and run down. Stepping into the jetty compound makes you feel nostalgic about the place. It is just next to the Weld Jetty.

“A place where local stays”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is quite a normal place where local people stay. Nothing fantastic but it is good to know local people's culture.
