Along the edge of wreck beach lies the remnants of two of many very well-known shipwrecks that occurred along the southern coast of Australia. Pictured below on a beautiful summer afternoon is the anchor and capstan of the Marie Gabrielle. Time and the constant battering of the salty ocean waters have reduced this very large piece of metal to a decaying mass. The rock pools that have formed near the anchors are so deep that they are likely to swallow a grown up should they accidentally fall in one.
