Wreck of SS Mildura

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The intriguing sight of the shipwreck of SS Mildura can be seen from the tip of North West Cape.

The SS Mildura was a cattle steamer, wrecked in 1907 during a cyclone. Most of the remains were salvaged and used for renovations and the hull was used for bombing practice in World War II.

The remains of the SS Mildura now rest only 80 metres from shore and are best viewed on a low tide.
