More Info →"Hydrabad" shipwreck, Waiterere Beach

The "Hydrabad" went ashore on Waiterere Beach on 25th June 1878 in gale force winds while on voyage from Lyttleton to Adelaide. It was a full-rigged iron ship of 1250 tons net register, built in Scotland in 1865. Length 229.5 ft, beam 32.2 ft, depth 23.2 ft. The hull remains lying in the sand virtually intact but is slowly sinking and will eventually become completely covered. Surrounded by water at high tide, the hull is dry at low-tide. Most of the beams and frames of the hull are still in position and the lower parts of the masts are still standing - part of one broken mast lies beside the hull pointing out to sea.
