Description

Carnarvon’s central waterway, known as the
Fascine, was named after an 1800s building
technique used to construct the embankment
on the south arm of the Gascoyne River. Fascine
means “water held back by a pile of sticks.” In
1896 fl ood waters caused severe damage to Olivia
Terrace and a tender was called to build a fl ood
protection system. Stately palms line the water
way, making it a lovely spot for a picnic or a stroll.
The sunset views are magnifi cent and you may
even see a dolphin.
