The S.S. Yongala Wreck

  • The 110m S.S. Yongala sank during a cyclone on March 23rd 1911, with the loss of all 122 people aboard.
  • It was not until 1958 that the wreck was first dived and due to its remote location it has remained mostly untouched.
  • The wreck begins 15m below the surface and extends to 29m.
  • Protected under the Historic Shipwreck Act (1976), the artifacts, marine life and variety of corals that cover the wreck are second to none, Red Bull names it the best wreck for sea life.
  • Often seen are Turtles, Sea Snakes, Giant Trevally, Queensland Gropers, Eagle Rays, Manta Rays, Sharks, thousands of Tropical fish and in the cooler months, even Humpback Whales.
  • Diving the Yongala is a bucket list trip no scuba diver should miss!
  • You can visit the Yongala on a Day Trip or a Liveaboard, your choice!
