Macey’s Wreck

This wreck was discovered on Mardie Station by Mr D Macey, Project Manager of Hadson Energy. It is an unknown wreck and therefore has been given the name Macey’s Wreck. The Wreck Inspection Report shows it was heavily salvaged. However, a bottle base found indicates use by Aboriginals to make tools and spearheads. Dating of these artefacts suggests the wreck is of no earlier age than 1880.
