There is still a significant chunk of the wreck right on the shore and is of interest for photographers.
Google Map of the wreck and how to get there.
Park near the beach stairs and head down them to the beach. Walk along the left hand side of Kitty Miller Bay towards the ocean. About half way along the bay (before the first out jutting) the path takes off up the slope to the cliff top. This part is steep and resembles an animal track more than anything.
The surface of the track is basalt and clay so it is fairly easy going but is slippery in places and gathers water. Good boots are not essential but advisable.
Once you get to the first cape there is a good vantage point over the bay before continuing along the cliff top to the wreck itself. The descent to the wreck is slippery and challenging so take it easy.
|The Path Down To The Wreck|
It's easy to see how the ship came to grief where the wreck washed onto the rocks and was gradually beaten to death.
A polarising filter is a useful addition to the kit for scenes like this so that your shots can see into the water and capture the detail of the rocks and sea floor.
The wreck sits within the rocky bay facing the direct ocean.
