Product Description

S.S. Yongala Townsville's Titanic

by Max Gleeson.

On the afternoon of March 23, 1911, the Adelaide Steamship Company's steamer Yongala left Mackay, North Queensland for Townsville. Within twelve hours, all 121 crew and passengers went down with the ship during a fierce cyclone. Forty-seven years were to pass before her remains were positively identified. She is now one of the most popular scuba dives in Australian' waters. This excellent, revised book, tells the story of events leading up to her loss, and the subsequent discovery of her last resting place.
