I'm flying up to Hamiliton Island from Sydney in early Feb and it looks like we are going to stay in Airlie beach, for about a week.

I would like to do some do some diving while we are there, but not the whole week as we are travelling with some non-divers.

Can a 'local' suggest some good dive location around Airlie for a day trip? At most we maybe able to do two day dive trip (overnight)

SS Yongala would be a must for me.

Yeh, thats on the list...not sure i'm going to be able to squeeze it in this time. Although its probably better than any day trip out of airlie beach.

There's a few other reef sites around there, but the Yongala's the big one. It's do-able in a day if you drive to Alva Beach but it's a 4am start & a big day.
