Remembering Skaubryn

A Dramatic Tale of Fire, Sea and Rescue

This small photographic display captures the dramatic fire and rescue on the 60th anniversary of the Skaubryn disaster.

The Norwegian liner Skaubryn was the only vessel lost at sea during the era of post-war migration to Australia, when it caught fire and sank in the Indian Ocean in 1958.
