Monumental City

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionarypeer-review

    Abstract

    Nineteenth-century shipwreck site in the state of Victoria, Australia. The archaeological remains are situated close to the south side of Tullaberga Island, near the Victoria/New South Wales border. The propeller, propeller shaft, and remains of the engines lie in one to five metres of water in a series of sand-filled gullies between large boulders and outcrops of flat limestone reef. Kelp growing on the site often obscures the archaeological remains, and excellent weather conditions are needed to access the site as it is exposed to the prevailing south-westerly winds. The site has been inspected and surveyed by the Maritime Heritage Unit of Heritage Victoria (formerly the Maritime Archaeological Unit of the Victoria Archaeological Survey).
