Mellish Reef

Mellish Reef is situated 700 nautical miles East of Cairns. The reef is home to the wreck of the Mindi, a 2,065-ton steamer that ran aground in 1923. The wreck spreads over the reef, with the largest section being the bow. The engine is a fascinating spectacle. Also, the winch gear is equally impressive. Near the Mindi, is the remains of an unknown fishing vessel, possibly from the 1970s. If anyone knows the any information regarding this vessel please leave a comment.
