Exhibition – 3D Movie: Deep Light: Illuminating the Wrecks of Sydney and Kormoran
Daily, 9.30am – 5pm | All ages | FREE
The World War Two encounter between HMAS Sydney (II) and the disguised German raider HSK
Kormoran off the Western Australian coast stands as Australia's most tragic naval disaster. 81 men
from Kormoran were killed and 318 survived. The lives of all 645 men on Sydney were lost. For more than 66 years, the location of the two ships remained a mystery. Then, in 2008, the Finding Sydney Foundation and shipwreck expert David Mearns found the wrecks off Shark Bay. This poignant exhibition showcases remarkable images and footage captured during the expedition, interviews with the research team, the moving 3D film From Great Depths, and personal reflections from descendants and family members of Sydney's crew.
