Royal Charlotte expedition

Almost 187 years ago, the Royal Charlotte ran aground at Frederick Reef, Queensland on 11th June 1825, resulting in two deaths. An expedition is searching for the Royal Charlotte's remains. A two-week expedition, led by Australian National Maritime Museum marine archaeologist Kieran Hosty, departed from Gladstone on 4th January.
