The SS Maheno is a rusting shipwreck that's found along the coast of Fraser Island, slowly sinking into the soft sand where it ran aground back in 1935. The SS Maheno had a long and distinguished career that took it across the world before it found it's final resting place here. Most of the ship is still on the sands and the jagged hulk has become an iconic symbol of Fraser Island and of the stormy coastline that's found here in Queensland.

The Maheno wrecked along Fraser Island's east coast during a 1935 cyclone. Most of the steamer is now buried in sand, though the rusted hull is still clearly visible. It's quite a sight to see while driving along the island's sand highway. Photos will have to satisfy though, as no climbing is allowed.
