The wreck of the 1912 tug ‘Wyola’ which was scuttled in 1970. C. Y. O’Connor Beach just south of Fremantle WA Australia.

The 306–ton steam tug Wyola worked in the Port of Fremantle. It was built in South Shields, UK in 1912 and run ashore at Robb Jetty for dismantling and scrapping in 1970. The stern frame can still be seen protruding from the beach while the bottom of the hull lies buried in the sand. A timber barge buried in the sand just to the north and sometimes visible is said to have been used in the scrapping of Wyola.
Robb Jetty at C.Y. O’Connor was used for the unloading of cattle from the state’s north-west to the abbatoirs that operated between 1890s–1970s.

This spot also has a man on a horse statue submerged in the water some distance off the beach. The statue is of C. Y. O’Connor, whose story you can read here.
