The west coast of Victoria once inspired fear, sailors spoke of wild seas and dangerous rocks, of reefs which lay beneath the surface of the water, of steep cliffs and heavy mists. Many ships had narrow escapes in this stretch of water, many were not so fortunate.
The area between Cape Otway and Port Fairy claimed over 80 ships in 40 years: ships which had traveled safely across half the world, to find disaster only miles from their destination.
A delightful collection of artefacts from wrecks between Childers cove and Moonlight Head is on display at the 12 Apostles Visitor Information Centre – Port Campbell. A 1/60th scale model of the Loch Ard allows visitors to reference the size of the ship against actual hardware including a kedging anchor on display.
