The S.S. Yongala sank during a cyclone on March 23rd, 1911
with the loss of all 122 passengers and crew. While it was one of
Australia's worst maritime disasters, it is now rated Australia's
Best Dive and is sometimes called 'Townsville's Titanic'.
The wreck was first dived in 1958 and due to its remote location
it has remained mostly untouched.
The wreck begins 15m below the surface and extends to 29m. As it
is the only structure in the region, the marine life gathers at the
wreck providing for an unforgettable diving experience.
