Investigator Strait Shipwreck Trail


Dive or drive to discover the shipwrecks of the Investigator Strait Shipwreck Trail on the beautiful Yorke Peninsula. Start at Edithburgh and follow the trail of interpretive signs around the coast to Innes National Park.

Enjoy the rugged coastline, cliffs and sandy beaches. The wrecks are home to many fish and sea creatures. Some of these are found nowhere else in the world. The sites are suitable for both experienced and novice divers.

Captain Mathew Flinders named the Strait in 1802 after his ship HMS Investigator. He was on a voyage to map the southern coasts, braving many hardships and dangers.
From 1849 to 1982, 26 vessels were wrecked in these rough seas, and more than 70 sailors lost their lives.

The S.S. Clan Ranald forms part of this trail and is the only turret ship to be lost in Australian waters. The hull lies upside down and makes an impressive sight. It has been declared an historic shipwreck under the Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976. You can also visit the graveyard of the sailors.

You can download more details from the website including a map.
