Two shipwrecks have been identified in the marine sanctuary:

  • The Grange, an international trader from Scotland that was lost in 1858 due to a navigational error. The Grange was a 3-masted wooden hulled barque that was transporting ballast material when it struck the reef on its trip from Melbourne to Guam after mistaking the lights from Apollo Bay as the Cape Otway lighthouse.
  • Wollomai, a local trader of the local mosquito fleet that was wrecked in 1923 when it was blown ashore in a gale.
