Smokey, was it a 'whaling' jetty? I thought I read somewhere on the walls of the Eucla Motel that it was for loading bales of wool onto ships in the early 1900's.

Fred, it's only getting worse. The Shags perched out on the end are going to fall into the Southern Ocean soon, under the weight of their own poo.

I managed to locate a close-up photo of said jetty.
