About Port Ramsay (Lismore)

The hamlet of Port Ramsay at the north end of the island of Lismore was established in the early 19th century to house workers in the local lime-burning industry. Lime-burning was carried out here until the outbreak of the First World War.

The rough stone jetty is no longer used and dries at low water.
