Do you remember way back when… …the Leisha ran aground south of Double Island Point?

Way Back When Feb 23 - Leisha aground south of Double Island PointDid You Know?

Leisha Track enables vehicles to traverse the isthmus of Double Island Point and keeps the memory of the vessel Leisha living on.

The Leisha ran aground on Tuesday 7 December 1954 around 13km south of Double Island Point after she began to take in water when a failure to her planking occurred while in transit between Maryborough and Brisbane.

Salvage operations were attempted to refloat the 84 tonne wooden vessel by another vessel, the Sarawak, but to no avail. She remains at her last resting place, now buried under many metres of sand.
