The Sygna, is located on Stockton Beach and is the largest shipwreck ever to be washed up on the eastern coast of Australia. It was one of the Hunter’s biggest storms in living memory. It became known as the 1974 Cyclone or the ‘Sygna storm’. It struck in the early hours of Sunday 26 May 1974, and on the following morning the 53,000 tonne Norwegian bulk carrier, which had been anchored off Newcastle Bight, was found shipwrecked on Stockton Beach. To this day, pilots and signalmen compare bouts of high wind
and turbulent seas to the early morning of May 26, 1974. The bow section was salvaged and taken back to Japan and the stern remains as a popular fishing location and landmark.
