    Default Germans came ashore in Western Australia

    Will they didnt invade but they did come ashore in one hell of a remote location called "Quobba" Its in Western Australia. ( Northwest)
    They came ashore because of the huge ship to ship gun fight with the HMAS Sydney (D48) 645 people died on the Sydney . 81 died on the German ship

    Here is a original news article from 1941 about it... 06 Dec 1941 - SYDNEY'S GALLANT LAST FIGHT RAIDER SUNK OFF CARN... german &searchLimits=

    Here is a video of this great ship.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv81TNmKSh0

    They finally found the wreck .... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlsxMaav1_w

    This happens to be one of the best land based fishing spots and i just got back. I will show you how harsh the location is. If they wernt rescued they would of died within a couple days as it gets up to 47 degeis C.
    The coast is some of the most dangerous in the world and so many people die each year here getting washed of 40ft cliff faces. I have to where life jackets and have rescue equipment close by all the time.
    Anyhow this is where the Germans came ashore, alot different to there home thats forsure....
    Here are my images...

    Quobba is in the middle of know where, very remote and extremly dangerous. I could only imagine what the Germans were thinking when they came ashore

    I've really enjoyed these shots, it's a place most Aussies won't see.
