The Star of Greece, wrecked off the coast of Port Willunga on 13 July 1888 is one of South Australia’s most infamous shipwrecks. This exhibition showcases oil paintings created by artist Christobel Kelly and relics from the wreck held by Maritime Museum.

Christobel spent her childhood in Aldinga, living in the old Temperance Hotel. She recalls that stories of the the tragedy ‘seeped into the landscape, and haunted the buildings, pine trees and sand dunes, so that the areas of Port Willunga and Aldinga remain ghosted and whispering places’. The paintings are her emotional response to, and imaginings of, that event.
