‘THE WRECKS OF HOMEBUSH BAY’

Saturday 13th August 2016 at 2.00PM

Most Sydneysiders have no idea we have our very own ship’s graveyard in Homebush Bay. They were all abandoned at the end of their useful lives mostly in the 1970s and now adorn the landscape at what is now Wentworth Point. These wrecks are also a photographer’s dream come true. As well as the old ships there, many items of maritime structures still are clinging on the shoreline.

COSHA Committee Member Betty Candy heard about these wrecks and, with a camera, decided to investigate. She will be sharing with members and guests background information about the various wrecks.

Venue: Sydney Mechanics School of Arts – 280 Pitt Street, Sydney
Cost: $3 Members; $5 Non-members
