South Australia,Australia

South Australian was built in Schiedam in Holland, and was launched in 1911 for the South Australian Harbors Board. From 1912 she did service in Adelaide harbor until she was laid up in late 1982. As part of a plan to create artificial reefs outside Adeliade, she was prepared and scuttled outside Glenelg 16.January 1985. She has become a popular dive site, and the wreck rest today standing on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of 15 to 22 meter at Glenelg Tyre Reef. The wreck is mostly known as the "Glenelg Dredge" wreck.
