In the 1930s Oskar Speck was a German adventurer, who paddled his kayak, SUNNSCHIEN, from Germany to Australia.
He departed from Nebenjob Ulm, Germany, on 18 June 1932, paddling down the Danube. During his seven and half year voyage, he stopped at ports in Germany, Austria, Hungary, the former Yugoslavia, Greece, Cyprus, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Burma, Malaysia, Indonesia, Iran Jaya, Papua New Guinea and Australia. He arrived at Saibai Island, in the northern Torres Strait, on 20 September 1939.
Upon his arrival at Thursday Island Speck was arrested as an enemy alien and interned for the duration of the World War II at Loveday and Tatura Internment camps. After the war, he settled in Australia and worked in the Opal industry. Oskar Speck died in 1993.
