Designed with Exmouth in mind

The Gascoyne Gateway multi-use jetty has been designed to make the most out of all the things that Exmouth residents love, while not compromising on environmental integrity. The multi-use jetty allows for a range of vessels of different shapes and sizes to berth, creating the opportunity for current Exmouth Gulf marine traffic, defence vessels and tourist ships to all use the jetty.

The jetty is also designed to ensure that local residents and visitors can still use the beach for swimming or use their 4WD on the sand. The jetty has also been designed with fishing platforms for residents to use.
