Description

The wharf was originally built in 1879 using local timber and was a major landmark of the town. Throughout the riverboat era, Wentworth was once one of the busiest inland ports within NSW (third busiest port after Sydney & Newcastle). The original wharf deteriorated and was demolished in 1983. This similar replica (including the little customs office) now stands in its place. A bronze statue of Captain John Egge can also be found at the Wentworth Wharf. There is an open grassed area with picnic facilities and a boat ramp. No camping or overnight parking.

Lovely shady area to have a picnic beside the wharf. Great information boards to learn about the history.
