Description: A huge long timber pier.

Rebuild old timber pier used to service the Hervey Bay Area from early 1900's. Used by RAN between wars and after, "Z" Special Unit used the area including Fraser Island as a training ground during WWII. Was linked by rail through Pialba to Maryborough and beyond. Steamer of considerable sizes used to berth along side. Present pier is about 1 to 1.5 km shorter as it used to be. Plenty of growth to see on the pylons.
