The video shows ex-commercial vessel, the Warunda, being removed from the seabed of Trinity Inlet in Cairns in 2020. The removal required heavy equipment to raise the hull sections to the surface and cut the huge vessel into pieces. These were placed on a barge and taken ashore for disposal. The process took several weeks.
The video shows the removal of a yacht called Sweet Kate from a seawall at Tallebudgera Creek by a helicopter contracted by Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ). The yacht had washed up there late 2018 and MSQ’s attempts to persuade the owner to remove it were not successful. MSQ removed the yacht using the government’s War on Wrecks fund to do so, and a helicopter airlift was the most practical way of removing.
