Rangitoto Ships' Graveyard
What you will see in the Rangitoto Ships' Graveyard
Wreck Bay and the adjacent coastline of Rangitoto is a graveyard for at least 13 ships that were dumped between 1887 and 1947.
The Rangitoto hulks are now protected as a significant historic heritage place.
When to visit
It is best to visit the wrecks at low tide.
The deeper wreckage just offshore attracts a variety of marine life, and can be appreciated by snorkelling or scuba diving.
How to get there
To get there, take the Wreck Bay Track, which is signposted from Islington Bay Road.
