The SS DICKY, a small steamer, was wrecked at Caloundra Beach (now known as Dicky Beach) on the 4 Feb 1893.

No serious wrecks were seen on the southern Queensland coast between 1889-1893 until a small steamer of 143tons, built in Germany in 1883 and measured 96.5ft long, 21ft beam went ashore above Point Wickham at Caloundra "and has ever since been there". She was on her last voyage to Brisbane, she fought a strong gale off Caloundra but was driven ashore. Loney 1982: All passengers and crew landed safely despite the heavy seas. An inquiry found that her loss was due to negligent navigation and the master lost his certificate for 3 months.

I really like this photo. Very strong colours and composition. Personally I would love to see this without the darkened edges of the image as I feel they detract a little from the overall photo.

It's really interesting to see rusted up boat ruins on a gorgeous beach! I really like this shot, you should try to sell it on DPC Prints!!
