|We sailed past Sonya's old workplace 'The Sydney Opera House'|
|Then under the Sydney Harbour Bridge|
After lunch at the Museum Restaurant 'Yots', we boarded the 'Onslow', an Oberon type submarine, open to the public.
|HMAS Onslow is anchored next to HMAS Vampire, a destroyer|
|The sub was steered by the Coxswain, usually a NCO|
|A very impressive engine room|
On the way out of the HMAS Onslow, we explored the Destroyer HMAS Vampire, Australia's largest museum vessel, which is the last of the country's big gun ships. After this, Australia's fighting ships were equipped with missile weaponry. The Daring class were the largest destroyers built in Australia. These powerful, fast ships were designed principally for the machinery and weapons of war. One look at the cramped living spaces onboard and you will see that comfort came a poor second!
|Full Steam Ahead, Coxswain.|
