Otago Bay and hulks including the Otago in the early 1950s
|Population||556 (2011 census)|
|LGA(s)||City of Clarence|
The area takes its name from the iron barque Otago, the only command of the author Joseph Conrad, which was dismantled at a shipbreaking establishment that operated at the bay (formerly known simply as part of Old Beach) between the 1920s and 1960s. The remains of the Otago (beached there in 1931) and a steel river steamer the Westralian (beached in 1937) can still be seen on the beach.
