SS Penguin plaque

SS <em>Penguin</em> plaque

A plaque commemorating the wreck of the SS Penguin, New Zealand's worst maritime disaster of the 20th century. It is located on a prominent rock at Tongue Point close to where the ship, carrying 102 people, is thought to have hit rocks and foundered.

The plaque was to have been unveiled at the site during a ceremony to mark the disaster's centenary on 12 February 2009, but the event was moved to Makara Hall because of bad weather.
