Dive into Shipwreck History!

Step back in time this December with an in depth look at historic shipwreck, South Australian through the eyes of the maritime archaeologists who know her best.

Wrecked off the coast of Encounter Bay in 1837, South Australian is the oldest shipwreck in the state. The Barque was first discovered in 2018 as part of the SAILS project – a partnership between Heritage South Australia, the SA Maritime Museum, Australian National Maritime Museum, Silent World Foundation, Flinders University of South Australia and the MAP fund.

Come along for a night of discovery and listen to the men and women who found her share their stories about unearthing the oldest ship in our waters.

Refreshments will be served. Bookings essential.
