LUCINDA JETTY

Distance from Rollingstone Beach Front Resort: 89.4 km via road. 

Lucinda Jetty (also called Lucinda Terminal),  is the Lucinda bulk sugar terminal service jetty and is the longest in the Southern Hemisphere. It is located near the southern end of World Heritage listed Hinchinbrook Island. At 5.76 kilometres long, supported by more than 660 concrete and steel pylons, the jetty is nothing short of an engineering masterpiece with its length actually following the curved contour of the earth.

Sugar takes 22 minutes to travel along the conveyor from the on-shore storage to the shiploader. The single berth can accommodate fully loaded Panamax class vessels and the major cargo destinations are Canada and Malaysia.

The jetty enables Lucinda to receive the largest ships used in the raw sugar trade. Adjacent to this amazing structure is a small service jetty which is popular with anglers who don’t have their own boat. Fish species such as Spanish mackerel, giant trevally, queenfish, northern bluefin tuna are there for the taking and some anglers have even been lucky enough to land small black marlin.

Recommended:

  • Fishing near the Jetty or try Lucinda Wharf (only 100m from the Jetty) is the perfect spot.
