Star of Greece

Wilunga Beach

The remains of the Star of Greece, a three masted, iron cargo ship wrecked at Port Willunga in 1888

I have been wanting to Photograph this wreck for along time and finally got the chance this week.

It was fantastic being there for the sunset over the wreck and was just and amazing experience, anyone wanting to read more about the history of the Star of Greece can find it here

    • Thank you Tina Very Kind of you and much appreciated.
      I think it may be one of the most photographed spots in South Australia but always beautiful every time I see it

      Thanks again

  1. Beautiful photo and it was fun reading about the Star of Greece. I love that you caught that pretty sunset in the photo also.

  2. Greece is one of the few countries I don’t know anything about but its wonderful nature and amazing weather, would love to go there one day. Thanks for sharing the lovely picture. 🙂

    • Thank you Laura I Found you through Leanne Cole and I am very impressed with your Photography, so I am glad I have the chance to follow you and see your work

  3. Great pic, but I am pretty sure that is not the Star of Greece. Those are pylons on the beach, the wreck is further out. Sorry to burst your bubble.
