Artist's Description

The 310-ton vessel, a 39-metre barquentine-1 was built in Nova Scotia, Canada in 1884. The Buster arrived at Woolgoolga from Sydney in February 1893 to load timber bound for New Zealand. The crew put down two anchors and ran a cable to a buoy near the former Woolgoolga Jetty. But when a storm from the south-east hit, the vessel’s anchor cable snapped and its holding chains failed.
The vessel then broke away from its mooring and eventually beached stern-first 200 metres down the beach just south of the Woolgoolga Lake mouth.
It’s been buried ever since, occasionally showing just a little when high seas expose part of her. This year we (July 2012) we’ve seen more of her than ever. A popular girl with photographers when exposed. Hard to get an original study of the naked lady!
