The elegant, ultra-modern SS Koombana arrived in Western Australia in March 1909; after only three years of service in the North West of Australia, the ship and her entire complement disappeared in a late-summer cyclone off the Pilbara coast in 1912. All 156 lives were lost but the wreck was never found. This thoroughly researched and compelling book comes closer than ever before to solving the mystery of Australia’s most significant maritime disaster. Author Annie Boyd spent months camping along the coast, diving and investigating wrecks, researching the Koombana, and meeting with descendants of those lost in the tragedy. This insightful account is the culmination of her work, which includes a 20,000 page online resource with background material and primary sources.
