The Jetty was erected as a Lion`s Club Project to commemorate the Centenary of World War One (2014 - 2018) and is dedicated to all ex-servicemen and women of the Nambucca District.

On Friday March 31 the new wharf at Anzac Park, Nambucca Heads, will be officially opened. Built by the Nambucca Heads Lions Club, the wharf is a Lions International Centennial Community Legacy Project to commemorate the Centenary of the First World War (2014 – 2018).

Long-planned, a NSW government injection of $50,000 last year from recreational fishing licence fees, helped turn what had been always been a great idea into reality. When she announced it, the Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey, said recreational fishing was an integral part of the local lifestyle with many residents participating in fishing each year.

“It is vitally important we invest in infrastructure to support a healthy activity like recreational fishing.”

The Nambucca Shire Council played its part, designing the jetty (in kind) plus $2000. The Nambucca Heads RSL Club also donated $7000.
