Finding the sunken collier, Birchgrove Park miles off a northern Sydney beach and in some 55 meters of depth using just an echo sounder was no mean feat for Wally Gibbins and his dive partner Ken Bateman.
This was when echo sounders were scare in the early 1960′s and involved a lot of search time that paid off.
The iron propeller would have been a disappointment which is why it is still there. Picture shows a section of the Birchgrove Park prop in 1967
