Australian National Maritime Museum

Australia’s coast is the final resting place of over 11,000 shipwrecks - roughly one wreck for every three kilometres of coastline. Western Australia’s Batavia and Samuel Wright are two of 14 wrecks whose stories feature in a nationally touring panel exhibition Submerged - Stories of Australia’s Shipwrecks uncovering Australia’s rich shipwreck history. Submerged is presented by the Australian National Maritime Museum and the Australian Maritime Museums Council. The exhibition is a result of a national project with workshops held across the country to develop the exhibition and to source shipwreck stories. Some 68 stories were nominated by 46 maritime museums and heritage institutions from around Australia with 14 of the most compelling stories selected to feature in the exhibition.
