Hi folks,

I have just come across some info about a shipwreck that, over time, has turned into an artificial island, with a flora and fauna of its own. I found it intriguing, and also most interesting. Unfortunately, is totally out of my reach Cry

It is located not far from Townville, Australia, just off the shores of Magnetic Island. The vessel was named 'City of Adelaide', and apparently grounded after a major fire in 1916. Some info on this wreck is available on the internet:

I searched the site, but I did not see any images of this particular wreck. I wander if there is (or will be, eventually) a member of the shipspotting community nearby, and that may contribute some photos. That would be nice to have at the site, I think.

Just a suggestion, of course...
