Tinker’s Well

Tinker’s Well was a spring providing reliable water for Aboriginal people who probably camped there, and for the first settlers on the northern tip of this rocky peninsula. It flowed from an overhang into a natural dish. Quarries and industrial developments which transformed the landscape obliterated the well.

Although fresh water seeps through several sites in the vicinity, it is no longer possible to identify the precise location of Tinker’s Well.
