Shipwreck exposed at Innes

THE historical shipwreck of the Ethel is fully exposed again after recent winter storms and people are invited to view the spectacular sight in Innes National Park.

“We encourage visitors to come and see the fully visible wreck, walk among its exposed ruins, and learn about South Australia’s rich maritime history,” Natural Resources Northern and Yorke Innes National Park ranger Mark Davison said.

Built in England in 1876, the Ethel was a three-masted iron barque and weighed roughly 711 tonnes.
