Hamelin Bay – Part 2

Hamelin Bay wasn’t always so quiet. In the late 19th century it was a busy little port, with a 600m long jetty to serve the timber industry nearby. Unfortunately it was also a dangerous port, especially in gales. The jetty was abandoned in 1900 due to the loss of 5 ships and a further 2 groundings in the harbour. All that’s left now are the timber piles.
