The Wreck (Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park)


The Wreck (Gippsland Lakes Coastal Park)

See the rusty iron barque of the Trinculo which came to grief on a sandbar off the coast of Gippsland in 1879. Now engulfed by the golden sands of 90 Mile Beach, the sight is a rarity as most sunken ships lie at the bottom of the ocean.
