Stinson Wreck

IMAGES: STINSON WRECK SITE AND WESTRAYS GRAVE

This walk takes you to the location and remaining fuselage of the Stinson Airliner crash that occurred in February 1937.

This amazing survival and rescue story started when the plane carring 2 pilots and 5 passengers disappeared en route from Brisbane to Sydney. Most believed that the plane crashed out to sea off Sydney, however after reading news reports, Bernard O’Reilly was certain it crashed somewhere in Lamington National Park. Bernard set off to search for the missing plane and before too long, came across 2 relieved survivors who were in a desperate state.

The story of the discovery of this plane crash and the rescue of the survivors is a genuine epic and is to be retraced on this gorgeous walk amongst ancient rainforests and steep rocky escarpments.
