HISTORY OF SCOTTISH PRINCE
The Scottish Prince, 800 meters off the Gold Coast’s South Port Spit,
features the wreck of a three steel-masted, 64 meter iron barque ship.
The Scottish Prince sank as it was sailing from Glasgow, Scotland to
Brisbane with a cargo of whiskey, mousetraps, linen and other assorted
cargo, with only the hull of the ship remaining.
WHAT TO SEE...
Scottish Prince is covered in soft corals and sponges, making it a
haven for crayfish, shovel nose rays, brown-banded cat sharks and
wobbegong sharks, and other tropical fish. There isn’t much access to
the inside of the wreck, however a variety of marine life will pop their
heads out to say hello. The Scottish Prince is protected under the
Commonwealth Historic Shipwreck Act, so make sure you take nothing but
photos and memories.
