"Fishing Fleet’s Home"

Jerseyville is home to many of the areas commercial fishermen, who tie up their boats on a purpose built wharf on the southern side of the Jerseyville Bridge. The homes here are modest but well cared for, with pretty gardens. The local fish co-op is here as well, the best place to buy fresh fish and prawns.

"Ferry No More"

Back in the day, there was a manually operated ‘punt’ that carried cars across the Macleay River. A toot of your horn stirred the ferrymaster into action. Nowadays cars cross the river by bridge at either Gladstone or Jerseyville. The village of Kinchela is all but closed up shop now, even the road to South West Rocks skirts behind it. It is surrounded by lush pastures and pretty homesteads. Bennelong’s Haven, a rehabilitation for indigenous Australians, is in Kinchela.
