The steam tug Euro was owned by the Adelaide Steamship Company for most of its working life before being sold to Howard Smith's Australian Steamships, based in Melbourne. After half a century of use, the Euro was stripped of fittings, except for the steam engine. The Euro was towed out into Bass Strait and scuttled using explosive charges in the Ships' Graveyard on 10 June 1948.

Built in 1897 at Dundee, Scotland the overall length of the vessel was approximately 39.6 metres (130 feet), beam 6.9 metres (23 feet) and draught 3.7 metres (12 feet) with a displacement weight of 233 tonne (257 short tons).

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
