Sailors Grave (Cape Conran Coastal Park)


Sailors Grave (Cape Conran Coastal Park)

The evocatively named Sailors Grave has a colourful history. A number of passing ships came to grief off Beware Reef in the 1800s and it is said those that perished during salvage attempts are buried here. Meander along the white sands and take in the Southern Ocean panoramas.
