Port Flinders

The lighter York was originally built in 1862 for the P&O coaling station at King George's Sound and was beached in the 1920s at Port Flinders on Weeroona Island.

For some time the abandoned vessel was used as a wharf or loading platform for barges carting stone from the island to nearby Port Pirie.
