In 1797 the Eliza, a longboat, disappeared in the Bass Strait. Along with the Francis, Eliza was taking part in a rescue operation. Eliza’s mission was to collect as many crew and whatever cargo could be salvaged from the wreck of the Sydney Cove. On July 6th, Francis arrived back in Sydney … but Eliza was never seen again.

It was the first recorded incident in the notorious stretch of water between Victoria and Tasmania. Since then, numerous incidents of strange goings-on have been reported. Some blame the treacherous rips. Others feel the fault is the huge waves whipped up by south-easterly winds.

Along with the naturally occurring weather phenomena, there have also been multiple reports of UFOS and mysterious lights in the area, pointing the finger in another direction.
