Description

This is the location of a local legend. The Georgette shipwreck, which sank on 1 December 1876 near Calgardup Beach, Redgate. Two women and five children drowned when one of the three lifeboats overturned. The wreck was seen in the breakers by Aboriginal stockman Sam Isaacs. He and his employer’s 16-year-old daughter, Grace Bussell, rode their horses into the surf and out to the capsized lifeboats. Over four hours, Sam and Grace made several trips into the surf bringing the passengers and crew—clinging to their horses and clothes—safely back to the beach. Twelve of the 50 passengers and crew lost their lives. The wreck’s location was rediscovered in 1964.

Redgate is in a special purpose surfing zone and is popular with the locals and visitors to the South West. For more information on zones, visit the Fisheries website.
