About the Show
Australia's greatest maritime mystery is finally solved. The wreckage of HMAS Sydney, sunk off the West Australian coast in 1941, has at last been found. The Sydney’s entire crew of 645 went down with the ship in the Indian Ocean after a stoush with German raider Kormoran, and its location has been a mystery for 66 years. This incredible story begins with a wounded ship lost in the middle of nowhere and follows the events that lead to its stunning re-discovery in March 2008. The dedicated search team brings closure to decades of speculation on the ship and crew’s whereabouts, easing the minds of many families with missing sons, husbands and fathers.
