Description

The Diana shipwreck lies about 100 metres from the shore in Port Fairy Bay on Victoria's Shipwreck Coast. Port Fairy Bay is notorious for vessels dragging and parting with their anchors when southerly and south-easterly gales prevailed. A total of 30 vessels were wrecked in and around the waters of Port Fairy between 1836 until 1876.

The Diana was driven ashore in a gale opposite Gawler Street, Portland in 1843 and subsequently refloated in four days and repaired.
