The Ghosts of Memory Cove | Maritime Museum | 7 – 25 January 2013

Heed all ye warnings, you nautical folk, for there’s bound to be trouble at sea, beware and be watching, there’s phantoms about, be scared, yes be scared as can be!”

Well, not too scared… sometimes ghosts can be friendly. They help us, guide us and warn of danger!

So it was with Mr Thistle. He joined Matthew Flinders’ crew, sailing from England in 1801 to complete the chart of Australia’s coast. Mr Thistle was warned not to take the journey by a mysterious fortune-teller but he sailed anyway. How did the journey turn out? What became of Mr Thistle? And the crew?

Discover the answers in a highly interactive adventure that features dancers, actors, puppets, and a spectacular (and spooky) video projection, The Ghosts of Memory Cove is a wistful and magical re-telling of one of South Australia’s most important sea-faring adventures.

Come as you are, or better still, dress as ghosts or crew ready to take part in adventure.
