Ben dives on two of these treasure ships, silver guilders can still be recovered from under the sand. Two Dutch treasure ships are yet to be found. Their wealth is enormous.

    What an Amazing Adventure out on the river! I found lots of awesome things with my AT Pro, while searching for my friend's lost wedding ring. After 10 hours of Metal Detecting I recovered many rings, one is a 14K Gold wedding band, but it is not the one I was looking for. Joe's ring is still somewhere in the river, next time we may find it. My best finds from this trip are the Iphone 6 (Which I had returned to the owner), The Rings, Waterproof Lumix Camera and the nice shades.

Ben dives on two of these treasure ships, silver guilders can still be recovered from under the sand. Two Dutch treasure ships are yet to be found. Their wealth is enormous. Millions of dollars worth of gold and silver coins in a dozen chests lie somewhere along the West Australian Coast. A lucky diver will one day stumble upon these riches. Australia’s first shipwreck was English, the Tryal, lost in 1622 long before Cook sailed our shores. She carried 500 golden royals and gold spangles as a gift for the King of Siam. Ben dives this ancient wreck but the treasuries not yet found. Ben discovered hundreds of shipwrecks, including the famous Pandora of Bounty fame, but there are thousands more still hidden in a watery grave. There are legends of Spanish galleons, invariably not true, but some of these lost ships are known treasure ships and Ben searches for them. The ‘Sun’ went down in 1826 with 40,000 silver dollars in the eastern Torres Strait. Ben finds this ship, but not the mother lode, except for a few scattered coins. He believes the coins were found by one of Frank Jardines pearling luggers, and became known as the famous Jardine Treasure. The ‘Ann’ was lost on Cockburn Reef in the northern end of the Great Barrier Reef, Her rich cargo of coins were lost. Ben locates this wreck and searches for it’s treasure. Australia’s greatest lost treasure is the ship Madagasca. She left Melbourne for London in 1853 with 68,390 ounces of gold, and was never heard of again. That treasure is worth $27 million today. Not all Australia’s lost treasures lie under the sea. It’s believed the Japanese pirate Yamada Nagamasa buried his enormous loot on Magnetic Island. It’s rumoured to be worth $100 million, and has never been found. Ben finds a strange symbol carved in a prominent rock on Magnetic Island, opposite the only bay a ship could safely anchor in. Is this symbol the proverbial 'X' marks the spot! Australia’s great gold rush of the 19th century added greatly to the list of lost treasures on land and in the sea. Queensland’s great cyclone of 1899 destroyed some 70 pearling ships and drowned 300 sailors. Bathurst Bay is littered with these wrecks, now buried in the sand for more than a hundred years, with diving helmets and pearls strewn over the sea floor. So what became of all the gold and silver that fate, so cruelly in many instances, snatched from its rightful owners? Some was recovered, some lost forever, but much still remains for the intrepid treasure hunter who is prepared to research the facts, sift through the legends, and give it a try. Ben’s film will take us around Australia to where these hidden treasures should lie.

[By the way, the word Abrolhos is Portuguese, not Dutch] TRANSCRIPT CHRIS TAYLOR: Tourism’s a funny business. We tell the world to chuck a shrimp on the barbie and they can’t get enough of us. But when we ask, ‘where the bloody hell are you’, suddenly they all get offended by the use of the great Australian adjective. Funnily enough, the very first tourists who actually arrived in Australia, landed here 150 years before James Cook did and I’m guessing their first words were probably, where the bloody hell are we? The National Treasure they left behind is on West Wallabi Islands, just off Geraldton in Western Australia. This ruin of a primitive fort which is on the National Heritage List is the oldest structure ever built by Europeans in Australia. How it came to be here on this barren, remote island is an incredible tale of mutiny and murder. In 1629 the Dutch merchant ship, ‘Batavia’ was traveling the spice route to modern day Jakarta when she hit a reef and sank just off Beacon Island. Beacon is one of about 120 islands in the Houtman Abrolhos group. Now Abrolhos is Dutch for ‘keep your eyes open’ which clearly somebody wasn’t doing. Of the 332 people on board the Batavia, 280 made it to land, and one of them was a nasty piece of work. Under merchant Jeronimus Cornelisz was an apothacary by trade, a bankrupt by law and a heretic by thought. Jeronimus thought everything he did was inspired by God, so he was incapable of sin, which was pretty handy. When his plans for mutiny and steal the ship’s valuable cargo is literally scuttled, God gave him more inspiration. The ship’s captain, Francisco Palsaert had already decided to sail their longboat 900 kilometres north to Batavia to fetch help. He and about 40 others set off that way while another group of men led by a marine called Wiebbe Hayes came here to West Wallabi in search of water. They stayed and built this – Australia’s first no star accommodation. Back on Beacon, Cornelisz and his cronies planned to hijack any rescue ship which turned up. The remaining men, women and children weren’t part of that plan, so the mutineers merrily slaughtered them. Hayes’s blokes on West Wallabi got wind of this bloody rampage. The enemy camps fought two vicious battles here. Final score? West Wallabies 2, Mutineers nil. What’s more the victors got to Francisco Pelsaert first when he returned a month or so later. Pelseart tortured Cornelisz and the other mutineers, made them sign confessions, then chopped off their hands and hanged them. 332 people started the voyage, only 116 reached their final destination. But the Batavia story has a 20th century postscript. The wreck was discovered in 1963 and ten years later part of the hull was raised and put on display here in the Western Australian Maritime Museum. Doctor Jeremy Green is the Museum’s head of Maritime Archeology. Jeremy there’s obviously a lot of shipwrecks in Australia, what makes the Batavia so unique? DR JEREMY GREEN: Batavia was a Dutch East India Company shipwreck and the Company had thousands of ships in the 17th and 18th century trading between Europe and Asia. This is the only one that has been archeologically excavated, raised, conserved, and put on display. CHRIS TAYLOR: And when it was first discovered it must have been very attractive for looters all hopeful of finding treasure and so forth. DR JEREMY GREEN: There was a lot of looting in the very early days and a lot of divers and general public became really concerned about this issue. And the government enacted the First Underwater Heritage Legislation anywhere in the world since 1963 so it’s really – CHRIS TAYLOR: First in the world? DR JEREMY GREEN: Yeah. CHRIS TAYLOR: Despite their bloodthirsty antics, not all the mutineers were executed. Pelsaert marooned two of them on the mainland. They were told to ‘Abrolhos’ - keep their eyes open for a vessel in two years time. Australia’s first two European residents were never heard of again. The wreck of the Batavia convinced the Dutch East Indies Company to make accurate charts of this new coastline. Australia was finally on the western world’s map. This fort is our first structure made by Europeans and that makes it a National Treasure.
