Description:

Scarce engraving showing the damage incurred by the steamship Barrabool from the collision with the steamship Queensland off Wilson’s Promontory.

The large iron steamer Queensland, captained by the highly esteemed Robert Craig, sank off Wilsons Promontory after colliding with the steamer Barrabool in the early morning of 3 August 1876. The second mate of the Barrabool mistook the masthead light of the Queensland for the Wilsons Promontory lighthouse and made course for it. The Barrabool was running full speed when it struck the Queensland’s starboard side. The Queensland was badly damaged in the starboard side and sank in just 35 minutes.

From the original edition of the Australasian Sketcher.
