Oceanic Grandeur oil spill 1970

The oil spill from the Oceanic Grandeur in Torres Strait in March 1970 highlighted Australia’s lack of preparedness at the time to deal with a major oil spill in the marine environment. Only one pollution incident since, the Kirki in 1991, has resulted in a larger spillage of oil into Australian waters. image from : amsa.gov.au
