Great Barrier Reef Locations – Townsville Region
Wheeler Reef: Considered ideal for night dives, it’s on the continental shelf and in the shape of a perfect circle. The options range from soft corals and isolated bommies to branching corals and plate formations. Marine life includes a smorgasbord of fish, plus reef sharks, rays and eels.
Yongala Wreck: This man-made reef formed from the 110 metre long SS Yongala shipwreck is a leading dive site that is now home to a wide range of sea life, including trevally, barracuda, eagle rays, turtles and giant groupers.
