Description

‘Viking ship spotted off remote NT island’ appeared on the online version of ABC News on September 18, 2012. The replica Viking ship was seen off the coast of Elcho
Island in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory. The ship was sailed by a crew of six Russians from Europe and was heading for a museum in Sydney. The Viking longship
is often referred to as a dragon ship due to the carved figure-head on the bow, as seen in the photograph of the replica by Tim Wethers.
