Oldest message in a bottle found on a beach in Western Australia


Part of a German oceanographic experiment in 1886

A Perth family has found the world’s oldest known message in a bottle, almost 132 years after it was thrown into the sea…

Tonya Illman picked up the bottle while going for a walk around sand dunes on a remote beach in West Australia…

Experts have confirmed it is an authentic message from a German ship.

Delightful and fascinating read.
