The passenger ship, 'SS Yongala', sank off Cape Bowling Green, on 23 March 1911. En route from Melbourne to Cairns she steamed into a cyclone and sank without a trace south of Townsville, Australia. The actual cause of the wrecking remains a mystery.

One hundred and twenty-two people perished in what was considered one of the most tragic incidents in Australian maritime history. There were no survivors.
