Comments:

Memory Cove was named by Captain Matthew Flinders in memory of the sailors drowned in Thorny Passage in February 1802. The islands of Thorny Passage bear their names.

It is a very attractive sandy, tree lined cove on the southern Jessieu Peninsula. It is quite popular due to its shelter and beauty and at certain times of the year can be a little crowded. There is a delightful walking trail south of the beach which gives good views of Thistle Island
