On the deck and off to collect my car, followed by a quick run to the Geraldton Museum before the dreaded 1500h close to get a last dose of Batavia history.

The arch re-constructed using the real stones from the wreck site.

Silver coins were strewn about on the sea floor.

Grisly skull.

Ship’s bell and cross-section of the hull.

And, to finish, some aviation history.

And that's it.

I've done one or two things in my monotonous and dreary life, but I have to say this was right up there! And it's on our doorstep!

A hidden gem!

Thanks very much JohnM looks to have been a great trip. The operators really seemed to have put a lot of effort into arranging interesting things for you to do.

Alas the food would have been no good for me as I absolutely hate the taste of crayfish.

Another awesome trip and TR. Thanks for enlightening us and lightening the days.

I'll be going (back) over all TR threads a fair bit over coming weeks.
