Our boutique on-site accommodation makes diving the S.S. Yongala even easier. Fully self contained, clean and very well appointed with all the mod cons, the complete Yongala Dive experience is now available. Now at Yongala Dive/Lodge you can eat,sleep and dive deep!!
Sleep in that little bit longer or go for a walk on the beach before your day’s diving begins. Yongala Diver’s Lodge is the closest accommodation to the dive site. Less than an hour from your bed (a 10min 4WD drive down Alva Beach, 30min fast and fun ride to the dive site) and you’re ready to have the dive of your life. We have even opened our very own on site ‘Beach Cafe’ to cater for breakfast and dinner, serving the best fish and chips in the area !!
Yongala Diver’s Lodge is a fully renovated Queenslander set in a tropical garden and decorated to a high standard for your enjoyment and relaxation. The accommodation is spacious with a separate dining area, kitchen, lounge with TV/DVD and sun room.
Bedrooms include two dorm style rooms sleeping 6 (with aircon) and 4 (with double bunk) and a separate Queen Room with its own tv and aircon. Separate BBQ and Beach area’s are also available for relaxing. Intenet access is also available (including wireless).
You can choose to stay the night before diving, the night after, or book the lodge and boat together as a package for a day or a weekend. Both the boat and lodge hold a total of 12 guests max. This is perfect for dive clubs and large groups as you have exclusive use of Yongala Dive’s operation.
