Semaphore Jetty.

During the early evening of Thursday July 4th 2007 Adelaide experienced a king tide which with the heavy winds, caused extensive damage to the Semaphore jetty, one of Adelaide's several coastal jetties.

The jetty is now closed to the general public until the repairs have been completed. The relentless pounding of the waves on the underside of the jetty planks was too strong and eventually lifted most of the outer section from their bearers.
