Colonial lithograph of S.S. Orizaba which was wrecked at Rockingham, Western Australia.

She was a mail steamer wrecked off Rockingham, Western Australia on 16 February 1905. On her approach to Fremantle, a smog of bushfire smoke was obscuring the coast and the captain lost his bearings.

It is one of the largest ships ever to be wrecked in Australian waters
