Lost wrecks found under a carpark in Bunbury!

Lost wrecks found under a carpark in Bunbury!

For many years there have been rumours of 'lost' shipwrecks along the SW coast. Now three of them have been found. Two are American whalers, but the third is currently a mystery. Although a bit further north than the rumoured Deadwater Wreck ( http://www.lifeonperth.com/deadwaterwreck.htm ), several of these could be contenders for the unidentified vessel.

Wood samples have been taken, so now we wait...

A special 'good luck' to any folks in Darwin, as they brace for another Christmas cyclone. I remember the year Santa never made to you.
