The wreck of Australia's first naval submarine has been found after a 103-year search.

The HMAS AE-1 was the first Allied submarine lost in World War One, vanishing off Rabaul, Papua New Guinea with 35 Australian and British crewmates onboard in 1914.

The 13th search mission for the vessel found it in waters off the Duke of York islands in Papua New Guinea.

The discovery solves Australia's oldest naval mystery, the government said.

Searchers used an underwater drone to find the wreck
