History of Barnet Marine Park


Barnet Marine Park is located on what a century ago was the site of a bustling logging mill camp.

Echoes of the past remain in the shape of a few concrete towers and the skeleton of a scrap burner. The Barnet townsite has a rich history. Starting as a small mill town in 1900 with a population of 150, it eventually grew to be a busy industrial area before the first Park Commission Development Plan in 1973 helped shape this spectacular foreshore park.
