Wooden Sailing Barque

There were only two survivors when on 9 September 1876 the wooden sailing barque Elm Grove was driven ashore on the Five Mile Beach at Wilsons Promontory. Seven seamen lost their lives.

Capt Leddra had previously been in command of the Vanquish, wrecked at Cape Jervis SA in 1864 and the A.H. Badger which sank after a collision with the SS Nevada in the Tasman Sea off NSW in October 1871 (Caldow).

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
