(Evening) Pt Nepean Quarantine Station: Hell Ship - the Journey of the Ticonderoga

With drinks, book signing & purchase opportunity after the show. Pre-show access and wander through parts of the Quarantine Station. Perfect to set the scene!

Her horrific voyage at an end, she appeared as a ghost ship ... 

Experience the story of the Ticonderoga right where she anchored in 1852. 

In 1852, the handsome emigrant clipper Ticonderoga arrived in Australia with a nightmare in her holds. One hundred of her passengers were dead, and nearly another hundred would continue to perish in quarantine.

On her 90-day voyage from England, deadly typhus fever had torn through her decks, spawning the name by which she would forever be known, Hell Ship. 

Hell Ship - the Journey of the Ticonderoga is a story of hope, and hope dashed; of courage, vision and bravery. It is one of the stories of where we come from, and who we are.

It is also the story of a young ship's surgeon on his first ever voyage, thrust into a struggle of life and death. This man was Veitch’s great-great Grandfather, James William Henry Veitch.

For Michael, this is a very personal story.

Join Michael Veitch for another important and mesmerising one-man show. FLAK had us in high in the skies of World War Two, and now we tread the decks of a creaky nineteenth-century clipper. It promises to be quite a journey. 

This performance is made possible with the assistance of Nepean Historical Society
