Going forward into history. The Precinct was the original Port of Carnarvon, which comprised the One Mile Jetty, Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage, Lighthouse and the Carnarvon Tramway. Come and enjoy a Jetty Walk, Ride the Coffee Pot Train $10 per Adult, Explore the Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage Museum, Visit the One Mile Jetty Interpretive Centre, Wander the Railway Station Museum and the meander along one or all of the walktrails.

Bloody atrocious woman at the Lighthouse Museum. Interesting place to visit but the staff member that was working ruined the entire experience.

Unfortunately the jetty was not open, but was an interesting visit with lots of history. The cafe was also good.

As the jetty was closed we went to the lighthouse keepers cottage, what a lovely place. Well furnished as it would have been and the volunteers are so knowledgeable. A delightful place.

This was a great walk through history, to see how the lighthouse keeper and his family lived. This is worth the time to admire and understand

The Carnarvon Heritage Precinct is a great museum area with lots of information about the area and its history. Check out the Lighthouse, the Train Museum and the jetty. Good place for a wander.

This little gem is amazing. We we're given a tour & everything was explained very well. It's a donation entrance fee, only a small place but packed with information. Definitely worth a stop
