Artist's Description

I am no expert But I believe the picture I have taken above is of the Boiler in 2014 and the Black and white one is of the boiler in 1942.

It was a great walk, but I believe much harder than they say. If you were to walk just down to the beach it would be moderate but very steep. By the time you walk around the beach and out on to the headland and back again it is pretty demanding. Well I am 57.
I first went up the track at the North end of the beach but don’t do that. The wreck is at the north end of the beach out on the headland, when you get to the end of the beach just walk out along the rocks and you can’t miss it.
If you want to see the ruins it is best to go at low tide. I don’t think you would see anything if you went at anything other than low tide. There is also a wrecked yacht out there. Bits of body motor and sails. The parking area is fairly large so I assume the weekends are busy. I went on a Wednesday and saw only one other couple and some people on a yacht.
The whole trip from home in Narrabeen and back again took about five and a half hours.

The SS Maitland was owned by the Newcastle and Hunter River SS Company. It was travelling from Sydney to Newcastle on Saturday 7 May 1898 when it was wrecked at Cape Three Point.
