Sailing under a lee shore

The coastline in this area has always been challenging for sailors...the sweeping expanse of the 90 mile coastline means there is no where for them to find shelter. The Trinculo was grounded in 1879 but they say that immediately next to it is another vessel- The PS Paynesville. The Paynesville was an iron framed, wooden planked paddle steamer and it was grounded in 1881. You will not see the second vessel as it's completely covered in sand.

The interesting bit about the Trinculo though is that with each visit you make to it... you are never quite sure how much will be exposed. It will depend on the conditions at the time... which makes it an interesting place to repeat visits to.

If you are into photography... this location is a gorgeous location to play with your lenses. :) I can only imagine what a serious photographer could do with their skills. Well worth stopping in to see the Trinculo... and the stunning 90 mile beach.

Glorious beach
Sep. 2018 • Couples
Found the shipwreck by accident , so to speak. Was in the area and saw signposts so went to visit. Access is not easy, basically through sand dunes and scrub. I honestly believe you could get lost in there.! Not for people unsteady on their feet .
The information on the wreck is good. There is actually not much left of the wreck to see , however believe it’s worth a visit, if only for the glorious beach and surrounds. The ninety mile beach alone is well worth the visit. Was not disappointed.

Contrasting colour of rust against blue water
Dec. 2018 • Family
The Trinculo Shipwreck is an easy walk from the car-park and offers beautiful views of the 90 mile beach. I loved the contrasting colour of the rust against the sand and blue waters. There was hardly anyone at this stretch of coastline when we were there. Important to note this is not a large shipwreck, rather a small section.

Nice deserted beach
Mar. 2019 • Friends
We stopped in to see this shipwreck while passing through the area.
The area itself is fairly deserted and does not have much in terms of tourist attractions great if you are travelling self sufficiently and want a quiet place to camp with beach frontage.
Finding the ship wreck was not the easiest, as the sign post is tiny and only states "Trinculo". A short stroll leads you to the beach.
Cool spot to take some photos.

On the trail of shipwerecks
Mar. 2018 • Couples
We were heading to see the Triculo Shipwreck. Once on the beach we saw the remnants of the ship. There wasn’t much left, but we could see that it used to be a boat. It shipwrecked due to a gale.

Nearby there was another remnant of a shipwreck, the PS Paynesville. We couldn’t see it as it was covered by sand.

Sad that shipwrecks happen. Now these are just remnants from the past

Worthwhile to see!

well worth checking out

Stunningly beautiful from every angle.
Informative signs
Easy to find, you park up and walk through the beach bush land. Make a note of where to came through though because you can get lost easy on this beach having no land marks as such.

Not much left!
Dec. 2017
An interesting piece of history (read the boards) but not much to look at as it’s mostly gone. I wouldn’t go out of my way to see it. Blink and you’ll miss the small sign (easier to see where it is on google maps).

Iron barque
May 2017 • Solo
Built in Bristow, England in 1858...She hit a bit of bad weather around Wilsons Prom and was grounded in Golden Beach in 1879. There was no loss of life in this shipwreck and now ... all these years later, we are left with an interesting relic of times bygone.

Today there isn't much left of what was originally there... but it's worth a visit to this pristine beach to see what's there. Just under 7 kilometres from Golden Beach township and not particularly well signposted .... you will find an area to park.

In years to come, there will be nothing left of this wreck... which is a testament to time.

Beautiful, Pristine Beach & Coastline
Apr. 2017 • Friends
Golden sand, the morning we were there it was bright and sunny, with no-one anywhere, water was pristine, cast, with a boat rod into the face of the small waves with a silvery lure and "Bingo", one sensational salmon, about 2.5 Kg... Brekkie 😊

Definitely worth a look at this amazing bit of history. Short walk over sand dunes to get there. Read about it on the board. Not far from Golden beach
