A message in a bottle has been discovered on a beach in Tasmania’s North East by Launceston resident Anita Denholm.
Inside the old glass ‘Halls’ bottle, was a rolled-up note, wrapped with a bread tie, which read:
"This has been sent from: Little Mussel Roe Bay
Sender: Angela Burr, Legerwood
Age: 12 years"
An hour after posting pictures of her find on social media, Anita tracked Angela down, and was surprised to learn it was 37 years ago that the bottle was sent out to sea.
Listen as Anita and Angela join Mike O’Loughlin on Tasmania Talks to share details of the amazing story.
