The Yongala Wreck is also accessible, and is consistently voted as one of the top 10 dive sites in the world - not one to be missed by the avid scuba diver!
The passenger ship SS Yongala sank off Cape Bowling Green, Queensland, Australia on 23rd of March 1911. Today it is a major tourist attraction for the recreational diving industry in Townsville. More than 10,000 divers visit the wreck every year, and at 110 metres (361 ft) long, she is one of the largest, most intact historic shipwrecks. To see the Yongala's memorabilia up close, visit the Maritime Museum of Townsville.
