HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

Jervis Bay’s noisy visitors.


If you live within earshot of the bay you may have heard two very loud blasts from a ships horn this morning.
The Australian Navy Ship Newcastle was on the bay doing “force protection maneuvers”.
This is where the ship is put under attack from small speed boats and the ship implements procedures to deal with the threat, the exercise is designed to get the ships battle ready.
The loud blasts echoed across the bay and the surrounding suburbs.
There are at present, HMAS Stuart, Newcastle, Dimontina and Gascoyne in the bay.
