This panel display highlights shipwrecks of national, regional and local importance. Australia has over 11,000 shipwrecks - that’s roughly one wreck for every three kilometres of coastline.

Submerged is presented by the Australian National Maritime Museum and the Australian Maritime Museums Council and is the result of a national project with workshops held across the country to develop the exhibition and to source shipwreck stories. 68 shipwreck 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.

Submerged – Stories of Australia’s Shipwrecks is on display at Port Pirie Regional Library until 20 May 2019. Entry to the exhibition is free. Port Pirie Library entrance from 3 Wandearah Road, Port Pirie.
