100th anniversary of building of the Ulonga
The AV Ulonga was first built as a paddle steamer 100 years ago, in 1910. She was refitted and converted to auxiliary by the installation of engines for twin screws in 1949. She was then used in the Kangaroo Island trade until she sank near Normanville in July 1976. The wreck now sits upright on the bottom at 37-40m. The USDC website (at http://www.adelaideadventurecharter.com/attractions.html) includes an aerial photo of the Ulonga underway.
