An excellent book is available:  Kangaroo Island Shipwrecks : an Account of the Ships and Cutters Wrecked Around Kangaroo Island by Gifford Desmond Chapman. The rugged, surf-bound and precipitous coastline of Kangaroo Island has claimed many ships and lives, particularly during the early part of the 1800s. In the latter years more lighthouses were constructed, so shipping can navigate with greater safety. Over ninety vessels have foundered on the island.

Ship Duncow, near Cape du Couedic, Kangaroo Island, the vessel was abandoned on 25 May 1897 and was found several days later, safely riding at anchor. The cape is located on the western tip of Kangaroo Island and is named after the French naval officer Charles Louis du Couedic, the Seigneur de Kergoualer (1740-1780). The "Duncow" was laden with mining timber from NW America bound for Port Pirie. The tug "Yatala" rescued the crew but later replaced them when it was safe."
