Shipwreck Coast

Play Video

Overview

The drama, beauty and wilderness of Victoria’s coastline is breathtaking, here the land doesn’t gently slope down to meet the sea, rather the sea repeatedly attacked the cliffs, carving chunks of rock away until the land is left a solitary pillar of rock, eventually the pillar gives in to the repeated pummelling of the waves and crumbles to join the reefs below, reefs that seethe with foam and salt spray in storms and give this area its other name ‘The Shipwreck Coast’. There are approximately 638 known shipwrecks along Victoria’s coast and only around 240 of them have been discovered, in this episode we remember some of these stories.
