Woodman Point Ammo Jetty

The Woodman Point Ammo Jetty was originally constructed in 1903, and has been open to the public since 1984. The surrounding beach and the existing jetty are popular for swimming, fishing, snorkelling and scuba diving.

Sadly, the jetty is well beyond its intended life. The age and deterioration of the structure has seen the allowable load weight on the deck reduced over time. If the jetty isn’t replaced there is a risk of its collapse.

The State Government allocated $9.69 million to the project in August 2020 as part of the McGowan Government's $5.5 billion WA Recovery Plan.

Woodman Point Jetty is one of the most used jetties in the Perth metropolitan area and is an important part of the coastal landscape south of Perth.

The old jetty will be demolished but its concrete piles, installed in 1939, will remain due to their significant heritage and popularity as a dive site. In order to retain the current habitat on the existing piles, which is popular for fish and for divers, the intent is to provide shade for these piles. The purpose of the new jetty will be to provide all community users a safe recreational facility and like the current jetty, the new structure will not be designed for or used by motorised vessels.

The Department of Transport (DoT) has been tasked with delivery of the jetty project and has developed three concepts for the new jetty following initial consultation with key user groups and stakeholders. DoT acknowledges the importance of input from the broader community during this phase of the project and welcomes feedback on the concepts before Friday 10 September 2021.

Your comments will be used to finalise the design of the new jetty.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    DoT has prepared a number of jetty concepts for the community to provide feedback on.

    Each concept allows for safe interaction of different users and has advantages and disadvantages for each.  Your input will help to further refine the design so it best meets the needs of the community.

    To do that we have prepared a survey that considers the key design elements and asks you to provide your preferences.  This will allow us to refine the elements in the final design.

    At the conclusion of the community consultation the feedback will be used to select the design elements and concept that best meets the community feedback.
