SS Colac - Derby
Remains of the shipwrecked SS Colac can be seen on display in the North West town of Derby. The ship lies amongst the beautifully maintained gardens of Lions Park, in front of the Derby Civic Centre.
Examine the large anchor of the 1910 boat along with its propeller. Standing alongside these remnants gives you some idea of the sheer size of the steam ship that met its demise just south of Derby.
Whilst in Lions Park take a walk through the picturesque botanical garden. Check out the range of flora from the local area and the impressive selection of tropical fruit trees.
To learn more about the history of SS Colac, wander through the Wharfingers House Museum which is a two minute walk from the park.
If time permits, the remainder of the SS Colac shipwreck can be seen at low tide on a scenic flight departing from the Derby airport. The town of Derby is just over two hours drive east of Broome, or a two and a half hour flight from Perth.
