Geltwood Anchor Memorial

Geltwood Anchor Memorial

Anchor and Lookout at Southend

On the 5th July 1876, the Geltwood, a three masted hull barque, on its maiden voyage from England was tragically wrecked a mile of shore, 16 kms from Rivoli Bay. There were no survivors. One of the Geltwood anchors can be viewed in Southend at a lookout on Cape Buffon drive. It is a memorial to those who have perished at sea, including local amateur and professional fishermen who have lost their lives at sea.

Another anchor and memorabilia can be viewed at Millicents Living History Museum. Some Geltwood artefacts are also displayed in the Beachport Museum.
