Nice shot. That is one of the most photographed scenes around Adelaide. Unfortunately several of the posts toppled in a storm last year.

I have been told (but haven't had it confirmed) that the old jetty was blown up by the local army reserve prior to WW2 on the grounds that an enemy landing could take place there. In a narrow cove at the base of cliffs, this seems unlikely to me. I reckon the boys just wanted a chance to play with their toys.
