Give the man a cigar ! To be specific it is the Houtman Abrolhos. named after the fellow who wrote up Dirk Hartog's journal. DH, unknown to most was the first European (confirmed) to find Australia though in all likelihood their were others before him. 150 years before James Cook.

Nasty business.

The ancient critters btw are Stromatolites.

This must be harder than I thought.

So not Eastern Australia. Try the West Coast.

We have here a shipwreck. A rescue mission in a small open boat that is almost as remarkable as William Bligh's, mass murder till finally the cavalry arrives and the bad guy(s) gets strung up.

The ancient critters don't do much but they are alive and exist here and on the nearby mainland.

Nothing ?

Site of one the most infamous shipwreck in a certain island continent's history.

Also home to one of the oldest living creatures on the planet.

I'm not looking for a specific island or place.

Obviously I missed the edit you posted since I posted my reply before you made the edit.
