We walked from Pollen Street through Victoria Park along the shoreline to Burke Street. A pleasant break in our journey and some lovely colourful art to enjoy. This route includes some of the historical walk, which would be a couple of hours, if you have the time? Burke Street wharf, the remains of, offers a nice photo.

Was driving through Thames and I had read up about this wharf, so decided to drop by for a look-see. Totally not disappointed. We reached it at high tide and the opportunity to take photos was wonderful, I spent longer then planned taking photos and just sitting there, enjoying the view. This wharf has a long history and it is... More

Wonderful history around Thames. The walking tour to see historic buildings and sites is worth doing. The Burke Street Wharf is pretty.

Burke Street Wharf is a short distance from Thames Town Centre and overlooks the Firth of Thames, it was originally called Thames Wharf and was one of many in the immediate vicinity at the time of the gold rush days. Although there is not much left of the wharf it is still worth a visit and a good photo opportunity.

The remains of a wharf constructed in 1868 as an ambitious plan for a deep water port for GBP 66,000. Today a haven for white fronted terns and gulls along the lovely Thames Coastal Walkway.

This wharf was one of the main reasons I wanted to visit Thames. High tide is best for photographers. I sat on the banks shooting the wharf for about an hour. Take a coat; it's windy. The wharf didn't disappoint.

Worth a quick drive past, cleaver metal work sitting on the remnants. Good picture opportunity, when I went at low tide.

We sought this out as it is one of the historical landmarks from the old pioneer and gold mining days. A pity it so derelict. Sculptures on it are a bit of fun.

Before arriving here I was honestly worried about how to kill our time without internet as there was no WiFi or mobile network in the villa. I was happily proved wrong. This place is unbelievably marvelous and reminded us of one of the simple but often overlooked principles of our life - to live, to talk, to laugh and to... More

Spent some time taking photos there with my tripod, taking long exposures. It definitely has the old, rustic, historical feel to it, and I am glad that it is still standing there
