  The Maheno Wreck
by MishyM

The Maheno wreck is another popular tourist destination on Fraser Island, and is located on the eastern coast, just near Eli Creek.

The S.S Maheno was built in 1904 in Scotland and was wrecked in 1935 during a cyclone whilst being towed to Japan for scrap metal after being declared un-seaworthy. It is now completely rusted, and part of it is buried under the sand, but it is still definitely an amazing site to see, as there is always something interesting about a ship wreck and the stories behind them!
