Drowning, Not Waving…

Detail from watercolour, 'Wreck of the Star of Greece', GF Gregory, 1888 (South Australian Maritime Museum Collection)

Join Carol Lefevre, author of Quiet City, on a Sunday stroll through West Terrace Cemetery’s sea of sun-bleached headstones. Many reveal tragic tales of watery misadventure – drownings in the River Torrens, capsizes off our coastline and deaths in some of the state’s most notorious shipwrecks. Presented in partnership with the South Australian Maritime Museum.
