I have never been to the Yongala (or Australia, for that matter) but my first comment was also - wow great clear blue water!

 

I like the depth in the third shot. My images are always too flat.

The visibility was up to 20m but the problems were more to do with the number of divers in the water. It was difficult to take any wide angle shots without divers or bubble streams in the background. These shots were taken right on the top of the wreck where the vis was best. Even so I had to clean a little backscatter from these. We went out with a company called Yongala Dive which operate a rib from the local beach. This meant a 30 minute boat ride where all the other operators did a 2.5 - 3 hr trip from Townsville giving us exclusive use on the first dive.

 

BTW Alex, I have seen your photo's and they are far from flat.
