Contributions & Sponsors

The District Council of Grant and the Port MacDonnell and District Maritme Museum are interested in receiving any contributions that will help raise awareness and knowledge of the wreck. This could include stories, family histories, artefacts, etc.

Monetary contributions are also welcome and the Port MacDonnell & District Maritime Museum has established a Deductible Gift Recipient Fund to support the commemoration activities. Donations greater than AUD$2 are tax deductible.

The fund is called "The Admella 150th Anniversary Fund" and will be used to help maintain the Admella Discovery Trail and other Admella projects in future years.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation click here to access the form you can send us. Any person donating over AUD$500 will also have the opportunity to choose the wording for a bronze plaque in memory of someone associated with the Admella story that will feature on the Admella Discovery Trail.
