Tales of the Esperance Tanker Jetty

The “Tanker Chronicles” project focuses on gathering and recording community memories and engagement with the iconic Esperance Tanker Jetty over the last 86 years and then documenting them into an important historical collection. The“Tanker Chronicles” project centres around stories that pay tribute to the sense of community pride and engagement with the Esperance Tanker Jetty, whilst paying homage to the social & emotional connection.

We are seeking to collect as many contributions from the local and broader community as possible (throughout all time periods) and encourage all to submit their personal memoirs in any shape or form. Submissions can include, but are not limited to; written stories, poems, artworks, historical drawings, photographs (digital or hard copy) or video.

Our “Tanker Chronicles” Community Liaison will be in consultation with the community from November 2019 through to March 2020 and can assist with documenting or recording information if required.

Your Tales of the Esperance Tanker Jetty

Community memoirs gathered throughout the “Tanker Chronicles” Project will be accurately documented, recorded and then archived in a comprehensive Esperance Museum Display and complete archival record – to be enjoyed and remembered for years to come as an important historical collection. A select range of community submissions will be utilised in the interpretive signage design of the replacement jetty and will be featured on interpretive nodes referencing the Tanker Jetty’s historical significance within our community.

Should you wish to have your story or information recorded, please complete the online submission by visiting the Tanker Chronicles Project or
