Emily Miller Point, Murramarang National Park, New South Wales, Australia
A relatively calm evening created a very peaceful setting for me at Emily Miller Point. This was a stark contrast to the afternoon of 19 November 1879, when the 29 ton ketch, Emily Miller, was wrecked near this location. The 16.5 metre vessel under the command of Joseph Rattray was carrying a load of timber when driven into the breakers near Wasp Inlet. The small vessel battled to stay off the shore in the face of a strong sea, but after two and a half hours the boat was forced ashore. The beach "Emily Miller Beach" derived its name from this incident.
