SAVE OUR RANDELL DRY DOCK

The heritage listed Randell Dry Dock built in 1876 is believed to be the only floating dry dock of its kind left in the world.

It now needs your help. We have started a fund raising campaign to build a shelter to protect this red gum engineering feat to ensure it will last the tests of time and be protected from the elements.

If you would like to donate towards its preservation; email or make a donation direct to Mannum Dock Museum Board BSB 105 085 Account 0029653140 Ref: Save our Dry Dock (your name).

All donations are tax deductible and for further information contact the Mannum Dock Museum (08) 8569 2733. If you would like to know more about the history of the Dry Dock: History of Randell Dry Dock
