The original town of Onslow took shape in 1885 to serve the wool industry's port at the mouth of the Ashburton River
Repeated cyclone damage and heavy silting rendered the original Onslow jetty impractical, the town relocated in 1925 to Beadon Creek 20km away.
This Old Onslow site is now home to restored ruins with excellent interpretive signage.
