SS Ellen

The Ellen aground at Morgan's Beach in 1908

It seems that the ship's boiler near rocks at Morgan's Beach, 1 1/2miles north of Cape Jervis, was from the 91-ton SS Ellen which was wrecked there on 12th December 1908.

Ex-HMAS Hobart's radar dish

The radar dish from the ex-HMAS Hobart is on display at the Yankalilla Visitor Information Centre. The display is located outside the VIC, adjacent to the museum. There is also an information sign about the Hobart and its scuttling in 2002 to become the artificial Fleurieu Reef in Yankalilla Bay.
