Discovery : The Shark Wreck

Discovery (Post#65) : The Shark Wreck

Photos of the day are all about “The Shark” Wreck. One of the intriguing and interesting scenery that I had seen while our tour bus was taking Parker Point Road in Rottnest Island was the wreckage visible near the coast or beach. It is called “The Shark” Wreck, it was a hopper barge (non-mechanical ship that cannot moved around by itself and designed to carry materials) wrecked happened in 1939 as it broke free from moorings at Fremantle and drifted to Henrietta Rocks where it was wrecked. This wreckage location became one of the easy snorkel spot to enjoy. These photos are part of Rottnest Island Tour October 2016.
