We passed this memorial a few times going back and forward from Wye River caravan park. I then decided we should have a look and pleased we did. It looks like a grave site but fear not, it's just a memorial. There is a good pictorial plaque on the small lookout which details the whole event. Check it oput.

This memorial to Captain Dobel Palace and Godfrey, from the WB Godfrey shipwreck of March 1891, is a fitting tribute in one of the most beautiful spots overlooking the rocks.

You can take stairs down to the water if you like, and there is parking on the landward side of the road (which means you have to cross the road to visit)

Worth stopping

Stumbled upon the memorial (about 5km north of Wye River) on the bush walk from Separation Creek.

This historic site shows where in 1891, the barque ‘WB Godfrey’ was wrecked. There were no casualties form the wreck iteslf, but a number of men lost their lives during the three salvage attempts!

The present ‘grave’ does not contain any bodies but was erected by the country Roads Board to commemorate the grave they found in their way when surveying for the Ocean Road. The road gang had trouble reading the very worn wooden marker and thus the inscription on the headstone is incorrect. Only two salvage workers are buried under what became the present road.

Fortunately we arrived at low tide and saw the wreckage from the ship - the capstan winch and anchor. The beach has beautiful rock formations and some wide expanses of sand.
