The Foam Shipwreck

Foam shipwreck

In the early days of European settlement, often the only way to travel between our coastal towns and major ports was by ship. These ships were the ‘backbone’ of our local trade and movement of people. They carried everything from sheep, cattle and timber to shell grit and general cargo, and mail as well. The natural Terrain – ravines, ranges, coastal rivers, swamps meant that there was limited access to the coastal towns across the land.

One of the little ships was the Foam, once a member of the ‘Mosquito fleet’. She was shipwrecked around Breamlea/Point Impossible. Her story is in the current edition of History Matters.
