About the Book

The elegant, ultra-modern S.S. Koombana arrived in Western Australia in March 1909. After only three years of Nor’-West service, the ship and her entire complement disappeared in a late-summer cyclone off the Pilbara coast. The vessel has never been found and the tragedy remains unexplained.

Koombana Days is the story of the ship and of the people in whose lives she figured so large.

Praise for the book
‘It’s a fascinating mix that adds up to a work of social history that is engaging and readable for a wide general audience. [Four stars]’ Tim Coronel, Books+Publishing
