Found the shipwreck by accident , so to speak. Was in the area and saw signposts so went to visit. Access is not easy, basically through sand dunes and scrub. I honestly believe you could get lost in there.! Not for people unsteady on their...More

The Trinculo Shipwreck is an easy walk from the car-park and offers beautiful views of the 90 mile beach. I loved the contrasting colour of the rust against the sand and blue waters. There was hardly anyone at this stretch of coastline when we were...More

We stopped in to see this shipwreck while passing through the area. The area itself is fairly deserted and does not have much in terms of tourist attractions great if you are travelling self sufficiently and want a quiet place to camp with beach frontage....More

Stunningly beautiful from every angle. Informative signs Easy to find, you park up and walk through the beach bush land. Make a note of where to came through though because you can get lost easy on this beach having no land marks as such.

An interesting piece of history (read the boards) but not much to look at as it’s mostly gone. I wouldn’t go out of my way to see it. Blink and you’ll miss the small sign (easier to see where it is on google maps).

Golden sand, the morning we were there it was bright and sunny, with no-one anywhere, water was pristine, cast, with a boat rod into the face of the small waves with a silvery lure and "Bingo", one sensational salmon, about 2.5 Kg... Brekkie 😊

Definitely worth a look at this amazing bit of history. Short walk over sand dunes to get there. Read about it on the board. Not far from Golden beach
