Hear Bunbury Museum's Barbara Rae tell the stories of Koombana Bay's shipwrecks from the spot where several are buried.

Can you hear the ship's bells toll? Some are still heard around our shores over 100 years after the waves of Koombana Bay took their ships. Come, relive the stories of Bunbury’s stormy past and the ships that sank into the silver sands near the Koombana Park lookout.

Next time the wind blows listen, carefully… dong… dong… dong…

When: Sunday 19th May 2024
2:00 - 3:00pm
Where: Koombana Bay Lookout
Meet in the carpark on Koombana Drive
