Artist's Description

The Urangan Jetty is at Hervey Bay, Queensland, Australia.

It is a former deep-water, cargo-handling facility originally built to facilitate the export of sugar, timber and coal. The pier, served by the extension of the railway line from Pialba, It was used for the transfer of cargo between rail and ships. It was built between 1913 and 1917, It was originally a length of 1107 metres. The pier was closed in 1985, and 239 metres of it was demolished. However, due to public outcry, 868 metres of the pier was left, and the land was handed to the Hervey Bay City Council.

By 2009 the last 220-metre section of the pier had been fully restored, and the original timber pylons had been replaced with steel pylons with a plastic covering.[

I fished a lot of my childhood off this pier. It was good to just walk the pier to see what others were catching and enjoy the ocean view.

To all people who enjoy the seaside.
