The New Jetty, Lorne

These images are from a couple of years ago. This is the new jetty at Lorne on the Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia.

It replaces an old timber jetty that was over a hundred years old: And, of course, does not have the same character!

The old jetty was constructed of logs and sawn timber, but the years had taken its toll on the rotting wood. But, the fact that the timber has been replaced with concrete, does not seem to deter the fishermen who sit their with their lines cast every weekend.
