The "SS YONGALA" (pronounced yongula) is an awsome deep, wreck dive off cape bowling green, nth queensland. Is a massive cleaning, breeding, and feeding station for many types of marine life, including corals. It has become a healthy, established, site as its the only formation on the flat sandy bottom, for around 40 nautical miles in any direction. The ship went down in a cyclone in 1911, with over 100 passengers on board. It is part of the great barrier reef marine park, so is very well protected. You cannot penetrate this wreck due to the preservation laws, although its magnificent enough without penetration. Massive fish, beautifully coloured corals, sea snakes, sharks, turtles, eels, just about any marine animal you can imagine, and then theres the history, remains, eeriness of 110 meter ship wreck. Truely, a magnificent dive site!
