The Joseph H. Scammell was a Canadian three-masted, wooden ship, built for the Scammell Brothers for the East Indies Trade. On her final voyage the Joseph H. Scammell left New York bound for Melbourne. The ship was forced ashore, on 7 May 1891, onto Point Danger Reef, Torquay, on Victoria's Surf Coast, by strong current whilst waiting for a pilot. Her wreck triggered a large scale episode of shipwreck pilfering and smuggling.
