Description

The Balmoral shipwreck lies in Port Fairy Bay off Richie Street on Victoria's Shipwreck Coast.

Within an hour the vessel had broken up, littering the beach with wreckage. The Belfast Gazette commented that much of the hull timber was quite rotten. The vessel had previously been engaged in freighting freestone from Kangaroo Point to Melbourne to build the Law Courts and other buildings.
