"Llewellyn" SinkingPrint Page
An honour board commemorates those who died in the ship "Llewellyn" when it sank off Mackay while on a mercy mission to take food to Bowen during the floods of 1919.
The coastal steamer was last seen departing Cape Capricorn Lighthouse on 17 July 1919 and disappeared during heavy gales as it sailed from Rockhampton to Bowen. The location of the vessel remained a mystery until 1997, when the shipwreck was located 35 kilometres east of Mackay near Keswick Island.
