Yongala dive trip


Im trying to arrange a dive trip up to Townsville to take in the Yongala wreck. There seems to be loads of different dive operators - does anyone have any recomendations as to who is the best? would really appreciate it!!

Also, any tips on where to stay (budget scale!) would be most welcome : )

Thanks in advance!

Not speaking from personal experience here...

You might like to look into doing your Yongala dive with a company (called Yongala Dive), operating out of Alva Beach, near Ayr (100kms or one hour drive south of Townsville).

The Yongala dive site is only half an hour or so from Alva beach.

Their web site;


They also offer accommodation starting at under GBP 15 for a dorm room;


In Ayr there will be more accommodation options,

Alva beach is about 15kms from the township of Ayr.
