Other SA jetties

Jetties provide excellent shelter and habitat for marine life as well as safe and easy access for divers, especially for trainees, open water and night divers. SDFSA monitors and reports on jetty access and use across the State.

  • Franklin Harbour jetty: The jetty has been closed for repairs in 2018, including replacement of structural supports and installation of new jetty stairs.
  • Port Giles jetty: Will reopen for diving and other recreational activities in April 2020.
  • Port Stanvac jetty: In 2016, Exxon Mobil and the State government began work to tear down the historic jetty, on the grounds that the jetty was not safe, in spite of efforts by the diving and fishing communities to retain the jetty for recreational purposes.
  • Whyalla: A new 165m “loop” jetty (with a circular boardwalk in the middle) is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
