Description

North of Moreton Island lies a 50 metre iron barque which sank in 1894 after a 122 day sail from New York, carrying a cargo of kerosene, glassware, wire bails and alarm clocks. Timber artifacts under the sand have been preserved from being drenched in kerosene.

In fact, the Aarhus is considered one of Australias first major marine oil spills!
