The SS Koombana was a late Edwardian-era passenger, cargo and mail carrying steamship. From March 1909 to March 1912, she operated coastal liner services between Fremantle, Western Australia and various ports in the northwest of that State. She is best known for disappearing at an unknown location north of Port Hedland, Western Australia, during a tropical cyclone on 20 March 1912 with the loss of approximately 76 passengers and 74 crew.

  • Die Koombana war ein 1909 in Dienst gestelltes Passagierschiff der australischen Reederei Adelaide Steamship Company, das Passagiere, Post und Fracht in einem regelmäßigen Linienverkehr von Adelaide im australischen Bundesstaat South Australia zu verschiedenen Häfen nach Western Australia transportierte. Am 20. März 1912 wurde der Dampfer nördlich von Port Hedland an der Küste der Pilbara-Region von einem Zyklon versenkt, der das Küstengebiet von Western Australia heimsuchte, viele Schiffe zerstörte und mehr als 150 Menschenleben forderte. Keiner der 138 Passagiere und Besatzungsmitglieder an Bord überlebte. Der Untergang der Koombana ist das schwerste wetterbedingte Schiffsunglück Australiens im 20. Jahrhundert. Das Wrack der Koombana ist bis heute unentdeckt.
  • The SS Koombana was a late Edwardian-era passenger, cargo and mail carrying steamship. From March 1909 to March 1912, she operated coastal liner services between Fremantle, Western Australia and various ports in the northwest of that State. She is best known for disappearing at an unknown location north of Port Hedland, Western Australia, during a tropical cyclone on 20 March 1912 with the loss of approximately 76 passengers and 74 crew. Other than a small quantity of wreckage, no trace was ever found of the ship, which was presumed sunk along with several other vessels during the same storm. At least a further 15 people died in other ships and near the cyclone. As accurate passenger lists were not kept at the time, the exact number of deaths is not known; however, all on board are presumed to have perished. The loss was almost certainly Australia's worst weather-related maritime disaster in the twentieth century. In her short career, Koombana also played a significant role in the public life of Western Australia. In April/May 1909, she carried the Premier of Western Australia, Newton Moore, on a tour of the northwest, which included the official opening of the jetty at Port Hedland, now the highest tonnage port in Australia. Koombana was also the first ship to berth at that jetty. In November 1910, Koombana was part of a welcoming flotilla of vessels at Broome, Western Australia for the inaugural arrival in Australia of the Royal Australian Navy's first two destroyers, Parramatta and Yarra. Twelve months later, in Fremantle, she was the subject of a divisive industrial dispute that had nationwide implications. Additionally, the loss of Koombana, and the associated withdrawal of her owner, the Adelaide Steamship Company, from the northwest coastal trade, was a major impetus for the early development of the State Shipping Service of Western Australia, which was to dominate that trade for the rest of the twentieth century.
  • SS Koombana – statek pasażersko–towarowy, który zatonął na północ od Port Hedland w czasie cyklonu 20 marca 1912 z około 138 ludźmi na pokładzie. Zbudowany w Glasgow, w stoczni Alex. Stephens & Sons w 1909 roku, stalowej konstrukcji statek o wymiarach 103,6 m x 14,7 m x 6,3 m i wadze 3668 ton, był własnością Adelajda Steamship Company. Dowódcą jednostki był kapitan Thomas M. Allen. Statek zatonął w czasie cyklonu razem z kilkoma innymi jednostkami. Dokładnej liczby ofiar katastrofy nie udało się ustalić ze względu na brak dokumentacji. Nigdy też nie znaleziono wraku statku. W 1973 roku pomiędzy Port Hedland i Broome natrafiono na ślady anomalii magnetycznych, które mogły powstać wokół wraku. W 1985 roku ponownie zlokalizowano podobne ślady. Do tej pory nie podjęto jednak próby poszukiwania wraku. Na pokładzie SS Koombana przebywał Abraham de Vahl Davies, właściciel słynnej czarnej perły zwanej Roseate Pearle, o wartości około 20000 £. Przypisy

  • On her recent trip she put up a tremendous performance for consistent fast steaming, and fully justified her claim to be ranked as one of the most speedy vessels on the Australian coastal trade. The demand for berths is still very keen, and on this trip she will take away a full complement of passengers.
