The Rottnest ship graveyard is a ship graveyard and dump site located off Rottnest Island, Western Australia. The graveyard is located southwest of Rottnest Island: older records identify it as a 7-mile (11 km) diameter area centred on 32°04′S 115°20′E / 32.067°S 115.333°E, while a 1996 report placed the site between the coordinates of 32°00′S 115°10′E / 32.000°S 115.167°E and 32°05′S 115°23′E / 32.083°S 115.383°E. The seabed in this area rests between 50 and 200 metres (160 and 660 ft) below sea level. It has been used for the disposal of obsolete ships since 1910. After World War II, the graveyard was also used for the disposal of Lend-Lease vehicles and aircraft.
