A beautiful Bay devastated by Disappointment 186 years ago

A beautiful Bay devastated by Disappointment 186 years ago

A stunning beach with innocent curves stretching out for 1.6 km along the base of a Bay facing North, receives refracted Westerly swell from Cape Wickham.

A short drive branching off Cape Wickham Road leads to the beach.  There sits a picnic table and chairs alongside stairs leading down to a truly beautiful white Sandy shoreline naturally made for relaxing, photographing walking, swimming and surfing. 

Our visitors on King Island, particularly Golfers visiting Cape Wickham Golf Links, ask Heidi Weitjens "Why is it called Disappointment Bay?" So we share the about Neva the Ship, tragically wrecked on a Reef 186 years ago.

*****  We share this story with you my Friends written by: ABC Northern Tasmania Article and Mr Whatley Photo - by Rick Eaves.  Additionally, facts sourced from Beach Safe website.  

A well respected and dedicated Local King Islander, Mr Dale Whatley, shares the story he grew up with about the Neva.
