Have you ever wanted to glimpse a view of the river the other side of Outer Harbour and been frustrated by all the industrial yards and private roads? There is a small wharf just off Veitch Road, which appears to be open to the public. I conclude it is open because there are safety signs warning about the edge, which is man-made and rusted at spots, and garbage bins provided by the Port Adelaide Enfield Council.



From the vantage point of this Wharf, you can view ships docked at some businesses, destroyers under construction at Submarine Corps and Torrens Island power station (across the river).



While this is not a fancy picnic area, it was of such interest that several cars besides our own were visiting the wharf to view the ships and look across the water. It is not specifically marked on the Port Adelaide Enfield Dolphin Watch Brochure, but the clear view of the river might make dolphin sightings a possibility.



When you leave the Wharf and drive along Veitch Road, you can turn down Mersey Rd North and continue until you reach Mutton Cove Conservation park (see Dave Walsh's article:http://www.weekendnotes.com/mutton-cove-shipwrecks/). Otherwise, exit via Victoria Road, past Le Fevre Community Stadium.
