Photographer's Note

The waterway in the foreground is Broken Bay, and the mouth of the Hawkesbury River. Broken Bay is a major waterway, about 15 nautical miles north of Sydney Harbour,
In the far distance the beach you can see is Maitland Bay, so named after the wreck of the steamer Maitland in 1898. The Maitland was an iron paddle steamer, photographs from the time portray its beautiful sleek lines, it was 70 meters in length and was built at Glasgow in 1870. The Maitland was swept onto the reef at the entrance of the bay during a fierce storm at 6.00am on the 6th of May 1898. Twenty four of the sixty three on board perished in the disaster.
Maitland Bay is now part of the Boudii National Park, and is at the end of a popular walking track. It is also a marine sanctuary, quite popular for the numerous dive sites around the reef which claimed the Maitland.
