Maheno Wreck - Review
It’s a startling landmark on an otherwise usually pristine beach – the ruins of a once magnificent ship rusting away on the sand. It’s been here for over eighty years. The Maheno was built in Scotland, and was the world’s first turbine driven steamer. And it was a luxury steamer too. During WWI, it was even a hospital ship.
In 1935, a cyclone grounded the ship onto the beach here, and the saltwater has been slowly wearing it down since. Though this is one of the island’s most popular attractions, there’s not much to do here. Take a few pictures, and remember its story so you can tell others.

Maheno Wreck, Fraser Island Reviews
Breathtaking. There's not many places you drive up so close to a several hundred foot historical ship wreck on a Sandy beach. Definitely worth the visit. Was plenty of tourists around in February but didn't really detract from the experience for us. But it's phenomenal when you do it to yourself!
The wreck seems to change every time you see it. It's kinda awe inspiring. I like that there is information you can read about the ship's history
Amazing place to watch the sunset before checking out other locations on the Island , recommend checking it out if your ever on Fraser island. Absolutely stunning!
Great history surrounding this ship wreck. Fascinating to see the effect of the sea.
Beautiful historic site. Lots of fish and selfie opportunities.
