Rum Jungle

To the north of Geraldton town lies Smuggler’s Cove and Rum Jungle, infamous landmarks where ocean trade of contraband liquor, tobacco and sandalwood took place out of sight of the local constabulary. Today, a group of local shanty singers keep the name Rum Jungle alive by singing songs of the sea – from crusty traditionals to trusty originals. Sometimes we dress up as pirates, not exactly a sea shanty tradition but hey, even pirates sang a few shanties whilst they pillaged.
