Discovered by a member of the public and inspected by the museum in 2002. The site is located in deeper water around two miles off Salmon Bay. The site has very little visible wreckage on the small limestone reef besides a boiler of good condition, a propeller and shaft, and two unknown pieces of wreckage laying north east of the boiler. Possibly the remains of a vessel scuttled before its destination, on its way to the Deep Water Graveyard in the Rottnest Trench.
The Salmon Bay unidentified site. Diving a little known, unidentified site in 26 metres of water, located on the south side of Rottnest Island and listed on the WA Maritime Museum online wreck database.
