Cockburn Dive Trail: Cannon
Engineer/Artist, Albert de Boer has worked closely with Cockburn Council to devise, fabricate and install features for the Dive Trail at Coogee Beach. The Trail surrounds the site of the wreck of The Omeo, which ran aground in 1905. Albert built both a replica of a cannon from The Batavia and a viewing porthole for divers. He has also mounted and installed items dredged up from the Elizabeth Quay development, an anchor and a railway wheel. Albert also worked with the City of Cockburn to mount and install two large anchors on the foreshore in Omeo Park above the site of The Dive Trail. Artificial reef was donated to The Trail by our partners, Naval Base company Subcon, who assisted with the installation of Albert’s cannon.
