The need for wreck conservation: View from the inside

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Shipwreck sites represent a link with the period of Australian history when the ship was the most important, and often the only, method of transport and communication between the Aus­tralian colonies and the rest of the world.
In recent years there has been increasing awareness of Australia's maritime heritage and the need to pro­tect it against some of the effects of human progress. One aspect of our maritime heritage which has received increasing interest is the remains of some of the thousands of ships which sank around Australia's rugged coastline.
