On the morning of 28 April 1656, a VOC ship called the Vergulde Draeck, travelling towards Batavia, struck an uncharted reef off the coast of Western Australia. According to the Captain who made it to Batavia, only 75 of the crew survived the resultant wreck. But they were never located...

The mystery of what became of the survivors of the Vergulde Draeck has never been answered. This was one of the most enigmatic episodes of Australia’s maritime history.
