New jetty for Partridge Island


A new jetty is under construction for recreational vessels at Partridge Island in the D’Entrecasteaux Channel.

The Parks and Wildlife Service has advised that removal of the current jetty is under way and construction of the new structure will begin immediately.

 The former timber jetty had deteriorated to the point where it was no longer fit for use. The new structure is an aluminium gangway to a fixed timber jetty. It will be suitable for use by vessels up to six metres.

 Construction of the new jetty is expected to be complete early in the new year. During construction, access to the island is available on the beach adjacent to the jetty structure.
