The wreck of the Oakland lies in 27 meters of water north of Cabbage Tree Island. This wreck has been described as a wreck sitting in the bottom of a fish tank, with her rib cage exposed and her bow and stern somewhat intact. She was a 154 feet long collier which sank in a terrible storm in May 1903. This unfortunate incident resulted in the loss of eleven lives and ironically the ship was carrying headstones as well as coal on her fatal voyage.
