The SS Maheno was a New Zealand ocean liner operating on the Tasman Sea from 1905 until 1935.

The vessel was also used as a hospital ship by the New Zealand Naval Force during WW1. It was washed ashore on K’gari (Fraser Island) by a cyclone in 1935.

The wreck is now a popular tourist attraction on the island.

The SS Maheno can be found on the 75 Mile Beach, not far from the popular Eli Creek and Happy Valley township.
