Submerged – Stories of Australia’s Shipwrecks

Australia’s coast is the final resting place of over 11,000 shipwrecks – roughly one wreck for every three kilometres of coastline.

Submerged uncovers Australia’s fascinating shipwreck history.

Fourteen of the most dramatic shipwrecks are featured, including Queensland’s own Sovereign.

The Sovereign was a paddle steamer from Moreton Island that was bound for Sydney when it was swamped by waves in the treacherous South Passage Bar, Moreton Bay in 1847.

Aboriginal men risked their lives and rescued 10 people while the remaining 44 passengers and crew perished.

Submerged is presented by the Australian National Maritime Museum and the Australian Maritime Museums Council.

This exhibition is supported by the Visions regional touring program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to cultural material for all Australians.
