The Sepia was a three-masted iron sailing barque (barge) that wrecked en route to Fremantle, 3km west of Carnac Island. It was carrying general supplies needed for the growing Swan River Colony. Maritime Archaeologist Corioli Souter has carried out excavations on the site and has found items that reveal insights to the needs and wants of the fledgling settlement.
