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.

Presented by South Australian Maritime Museum
