Stop 8 Wynyard Wharf

In the mid-1850s trading and fishing vessels are recorded as having been moored in the Inglis River at spots from the Cape Road bridge back to Camp Creek on both sides of the river. The Inglis River wharf would become a very busy port until the late 1930s with trading ketches unloading supplies for retail stores and products for the farming industry. Potatoes and timber were the main loads for the return trips.
