Dive the Scottish Prince Shipwreck

Gold Coast, Queensland

On 3/2/1887, the Scottish Prince was proceeding northward along the
east coast on the final stages of a voyage from Glasgow
to Brisbane. At 11:40pm the master left the deck, leaving the
second mate in charge—who had never sailed these waters
before. Shortly after midnight the vessel ran aground.
Several unsuccessful attempts were made by steamers to tow the ship off the bar. Within a few days, south-easterly weather conditions
deteriorated. The ship keeled over and was abandoned.
Over time the decks opened up allowing cases of cargo including sewing machines, drapery, whiskey, beer and mineral waters to be washed ashore.
The bow of the iron hull is pointing towards the shore and is broken into three main sections. The bow and stern are both reasonably intact; however the side plates and decks have collapsed.
It is now a habitat which provides food and shelter for a variety of marine life including sponges, corals, pelagic and reef fish, rays, octopus and wobbegong sharks.
