Daly’s Wharf Akaroa

Built around 1864, this is the oldest surviving wharf in Akaroa. Not the town’s main wharf but it is used by ships, fishing boats and tourist boat services. After extensive refurbishment in 1913, the wharf had a shed with its orange conical roof added. You can walk around the shed at the end. I took a number of photographs from and of the wharf. This wide version was my favourite. The bright white wooden fence on the left leads the eye to the shed. The old street lamps are also a rare sight to see on such a jetty.
