“Since the publication of his first book in 1965, works by Jack Loney have sold more than 110,000 copies throughout Australia and overseas.
“Wrecks Along the Great Ocean Road”, first released in 1967 and now in its seventh edition is probably the best known of the 32 titles he has so far contributed on marine and local history, but other well known books include “Victorian Shipwrecks”, “Wrecks on the Gippsland Coast”, :Wrecks on South Australia’s South Coast”, “Wrecks on the N.S.W. South Coast” and “Tall Ships and Sailormen”.
In all books the text is well supplemented by hundreds of selections from a large personal collection of shipping photographs and illustrations.
For some years Mr. Loney has been available to speak to historical societies, clubs, schools and groups interested in Australian maritime history and is deeply conscious of the vast scope of seafaring history still awaiting research and collation.”
