Lucinda Jetty
Lucinda is home to the longest service jetty in the southern hemisphere. This jetty is an engineering masterpiece. It is 5.76km long and actually follows the curved contour of the earth. The jetty is situated off the beach at Lucinda and is very hard to miss. You cannot access the jetty as it is privately owned, but it can be viewed from the beach at Lucinda. The jetty transports sugar along a conveyer from the Lucinda Bulk Sugar Terminal to the waiting ships to be exported. This Jetty enables Lucinda to receive the largest ships used in the raw sugar trade.
