Annie Boyd spent her childhood in Perth and returned to Western Australia in her thirties where her interest in marine life turned to shipwrecks and maritime history.
A chance mention of Koombana at a maritime archaeology meeting sparked her interest in this still-unsolved mystery. An experienced and adventurous diver, Annie has spent months camping along the Nor’-West coast, investigating wrecks, following the ocean and its leads.
In the course of her research she met with many descendants seeking information about relatives lost in the tragedy.
