Goodaywang Wharf at Point Clare in New South Wales was built in 1841 from sandstone blocks obtained from the local area.
The above information – on a plaque erected near the site of the wharf – shows the original homestead (now delineated by a few stone markers on the site), the fence used to direct livestock onto waiting vessels, the swimming pool and the Goodaywang Wharf (with a small waiting shed) in the background.
In later years a stone swimming pool was erected on the site but it has now been dismantled.
The Marine Rescue Central Coast is located in Goodaywang Reserve at the end of Kurrawa Avenue Point Clare, not far from the wharf site.
There is a pleasant picnic area with views of Brisbane Water and a walking track which is also part of the Gosford to Woy Woy bicycle track.
I took the photographs above, to show some views of the reserve.
