S.S Yongala, Australia

Looking for adventure in 2020? From torpedoed battleships to deliberately downed cargo boats, here's our guide to some of the best wreck dives in the world...

Located in the world heritage listed Great Barrier Reef Marine Park the 110 metre steamship sank during a cyclone in 1911. All 122 on board were killed and the wreck was not discovered until 1958. The site is now protected under the Historic Shipwreck Act and is on the “bucket list” for many fanatics who want to experience one of the world's best shipwreck dives.

The wreck is famous due to its prolific variety and size of marine life. Divers can be lucky enough to see giant groupers, giant marble rays and giant trevally while swimming among schools of barracuda, eagle rays, turtles and sea snakes.
