Jetty to Jetty Project

An accord between the Shire of Broome and Yawuru Native Title Holders was signed in April 2015 to create a heritage walk trail linking Streeter’s Jetty in Chinatown and the site of Broome’s old jetty at Town Beach. The walk trail uses existing footpaths and highlights 13 historic locations along the route with interpretive signage and bench seating installed at each, with more locations identified for possible inclusion at a later stage.

Installation of the sign at Streeter’s Jetty occurred in April 2015. Stage one signage installation commenced in June 2015 with seating installation now complete. The signage and seating was installed by the Shire of Broome, with the content for the signs developed by Yawuru and featuring historical photographs and quotes from senior Broome figures.
