Description

2006 will mark the 50th anniversary of the loss of the Birchgrove Park, the last sinking of a sixty miler in Sydney waters. This story is set in an era when Sydney functioned on millions of tons per coal per annum and the harbour was vibrant with shipping movement. Not least were the sixty milers, small colliers, who earned their name carrying coal along the sixty four nautical miles between Nobby’s light at Newcastle and North head, Sydney. PB 310 Pages.
