Drowning, not Waving

Join Carol Lefevre, author of ‘Quiet City’, on a Sunday stroll through West Terrace Cemetery’s sea of sun-bleached headstones. Many hold tragic tales of watery misadventure – drownings in the River Torrens, capsizes off Glenelg and deaths in some of our state’s most notorious shipwrecks. Presented in partnership with the South Australian Maritime Museum. Bookings essential.
